Minor Hurling
Now that the Leaving Cert has finished Minor Hurling training has started again. Our first game is fixed for Monday June 29th away to the Brickies.

Under 14
We played the first round of the Division 1 Hurling Championship on Monday night of last week against Tramore. After playing a nice brand of hurling throughout our lads won the game comfortably on a score line of 5-11 to 0-8.
This weekend this group of young players head for Carnew in County Wexford to take part in the annual national ile Peil competition where they will represent Waterford. We wish everyone involved well and hopefully all the players involved will remember this outing for many years to come. This a great opportunity for all the players involved to test themselves against some of the best players in the country at this age group and we are all sure in the club that they will do the club and their families proud over the weekend.

Under 12
Our Under 12 team played against Cois Brid on Friday night last and everyone involved acquitted themselves well.

Under 9
Our Under 9 team have just finished their Town and Country League in hurling and football. In total they played 8 matches and every one of the group improved as the league went on. This group also travelled to Killeagh last weekend to take part in a hurling blitz. The improvement that was seen from the first game this group played this year to the blitz last weekend was plain for all to see and a big thank you must go to the mentors involved at this age group.

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.
