On behalf of all in the club we send our deepest sympathies to the Houlihan family and all in Dungarvan GAA Club on the tragic death of David Houlihan last week. Whilst David was of course a proud member of Dungarvan GAA Club he had many friends in Abbeyside and the news of his untimely death shocked and saddened everyone when they heard it last Wednesday. David had an infectious personality which meant that he endeared himself to anyone who ever met him and had played against us only a few short weeks ago in Intermediate Football. The fantastic response to the fundraising activity to help with returning David home is testament if any were needed to the high regard David was held in by all who knew him. Indeed it is often said that only the good die young and this is certainly true of David. He will be deeply missed by all his good friends in Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club and we once again send our sympathies to all the Houlihan Family and the members of Dungarvan GAA Club.

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.
