Juvenile Notes - 6th May

Minor Football
Our minor football team have reached the semi final of the county championship with a win against Dungarvan on Wednesday night last at home. We would like to thank the Dungarvan mentors on the night who were very generous in their help to us when one of our players got injured in the match.

Under 16
Our under 16 footballers played against Gaultier in the County Championship on Monday night of last week and after a fine competitive game came away with victory.

Under 14 and 13
Last Wednesday night also our under 14 football team were in action. This time the opposition were Clashmore and again our lads did very well on the night and took the two points on offer. Well done to all. Our under 13 team were due to play last Saturday morning but unfortunately this game never took place but this team will be in action again in the next few weeks.

Under 12
The Under 12 Town and Country League is now underway in hurling. We have two games played so far against St Pats in Colligan and against Cappoquin in Abbeyside. The skill level of this team is improving with every outing and hopefully this will continue to be the way for the rest of the season.

Under 11
We played against An Rinn in the Town and Country Under 11 Hurling League on Friday night last away from home and after a good display came out on top. This group now have three games played in the Town and Country League.

Under 9
We have played two games in this Town and Country League so far. One game against Fourmilewater in hurling and one in football against The Nire. On both occasions the lads played very well with some outstanding displays all over the field.

Outdoor Hurling
Our outdoor hurling sessions continue again on Saturday morning the 9th May at our club grounds. These sessions will include under 6, 7 and 8s and will run from 10.30 to 11.30. Our under 9 team will train between the time of 11.30 and 12.30 at our wall ball. All are welcome to attend and it would be great to see some new faces. Helmets will be available to buy at a discounted rate at these sessions.

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.
