Minor Football
Our minor footballers are in action this evening (Wednesday) in the county championship semi final at the Fraher Field at 7 pm against St Declans Kilmacthomas. All support here would be very welcome indeed and best wishes are sent to everyone involved.

Under 14 Hurling and Football
Our under 14 hurling team played the Féile Hurling County Quarter Final on Tuesday night of last week. This was a cracking game of hurling where we eventually came out on top on a score line of 4-12 to 4-8. They will now play Roanmore this Wednesday evening in the semi final of this competition.
Then on Thursday night last week this team were in action again but this time in football where we came out on top also. The opponents on the night were Dungarvan who put up a spirited performance throughout despite being up against a team for whom everything went throughout the match. Well done to all our under 14 team who are improving with every outing.

Under 16
Our under 16 football team were also in action last weekend in the semi final of the county football championship against Gaultier. We had to battle hard to come out on top in this game but battle we did to reach the county final on Saturday week.

Club History
Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club was formed in 1967 as a result of the amalgamation of Abbeyside Hurling and Football Clubs and Ballinacourty Football Club. It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane. Located on the eastern side of the River Colligan, it forms the northern and eastern shorelines of Dungarvan Harbour from Abbeyside Church to Ballinacourty Lighthouse
Development Fund
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club has been growing at a dramatic pace over the past 10 years with the population of our parish increasing rapidly. We must ensure that we have the best facilities for all our players. We want to ensure that the next generation have the facilities that they need and deserve. We are asking supporters and friends to support this project over the next five years.
Strategic Plan
Past generations have had their visions for the future of our club. These are our current aims and with these achieved we hope to hand on the club to future generations in the same healthy state it was passed onto us.
