Club Notes - 22nd July

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 23
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €3,600 as on Sunday night last Damien O’Donoghue was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 23 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Michael Ahearne and Tommy Reynolds Snr 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 Crottys Corner Bar.

Junior Football
Our game against Melleray did not go ahead last Friday night as our opponents gave us a walkover.

Junior Hurling
We play The Geraldines this Saturday night at 7:30 pm in Colligan in the Western Championship.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Tiernan Murray and Jacqui McGrath on their marriage which took place last weekend with many club members in attendance including many who traveled from abroad to attend. We wish Tiernan and Jacqui every happiness in the years ahead.

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 €700.

On behalf of all in the club we send our deepest sympathies to Austin Flynn and to all the Flynn family on the death of Sybil Flynn last week. Austin was of course one of the finest hurlers ever produced by this county and hurled for many years in the blue and gold of Abbeyside. Again we extend our sympathies to Austin and all the Flynn family on Sybil’s passing.

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.
