Club Notes - 17th June

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 43
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €2,600 as on Sunday night last Christy Dunford was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 43 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Shirley and Maria and Richie Ryan won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar and Crotty’s Corner Bar.

Senior Hurling
It was a busy few days for our Senior Hurlers last week with two games in the Sargent Cup Competition. On Wednesday night we welcomed Fourmilewater to Abbeyside and at the end of a close game we emerged victorious. Then on Saturday evening we traveled to Lismore, where at the end of a high scoring game it was the home side who ran out winners. On Tuesday night next we play Tallow in round 3 of the County Championship in Lismore at 7:30 pm.

Junior Hurling
This Thursday night our Junior B Hurlers play Modeligo in Abbeyside at 7:30 pm and then on Friday night our Junior A team play Tallow in Bushy Park also at 7:30 pm.

Intercounty Activity
On behalf of all in the club we would like to wish the Waterford Under 21 Hurlers the very best of luck ahead of their Munster Championship game against Cork tonight in Cork, where Donncha Enright is a selector and Brian Looby is a member of the panel. We also wish the Waterford Senior Footballers the very best of luck ahead of their All Ireland Qualifier game against Offaly in Fraher Field on Saturday.

Worthy Cause
This July our own Jonathon Moore will depart for Ethiopia where he will take part in a volunteer project building a school for some of the most impoverished children in the world. To help him raise funds for this project he is holding a golf classic in West Waterford Golf Club this Friday and we would ask all club members to support this worthy cause as best you can. Tee times can be booked through West Waterford Golf Club.

Booking of Fields
With a number of teams starting back training we would like to remind all team managers to please ensure that they book the field with Michael O’Donovan prior to training.

Club Bingo
Our Club Bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €450.

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.
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland.
