Hurling on the Green - Night 1

On Wednesday evening last, 22nd July, Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club hosted the first of our 'Hurling on the Green' sessions in Tournore Park. Over 80 children attended from there and neighbouring estates in what proved to be a very successful event. The aim of the initiative is to go out into the community and introduce Gaelic Games to youngsters in a friendly and fun environment. 

The next session takes place on Wednesday evening next, 29th July from 7:00pm to 8:00pm, again in Tournore. All children from 5 to 9 years from all over the parish are invited to attend. Hurleys and helmets will be provided for those who require them.

Many thanks to all the coaches and administrators for helping out on the night. Below is a selection of photographs of the event, kindly provided by Kieran Russell.

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.
