Juvenile Notes - 29th July

Hurling on the Green
It was fantastic on Wednesday night last to see so many children between the ages of 5 and 8 turn out for Hurling on the Green. Thankfully the weather was much better than the previous week and as a result up to 80 kids were present. Hopefully we will get a good turn out on this Wednesday night also.

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurlers play their third game of the county minor hurling championship on this Wednesday night against Clann Na Gael in Abbeyside. The Kieran Lennon trophy will also be competed for in this game to mark the work of a very loyal club man who has gone to his eternal reward.

Under 15
We played Under 15 football on Saturday morning last where we played two games. We played the Brickies and the Gaeltacht. We played well in both games and came away with victory in both. Well done to all involved.

Under 16
We beat Tramore in the Under 16 Hurling Championship last week away on a score line of 3-26 to 4-7. We played well on the night and hit some great scores. Our next match in this championship is at home to neighbours Dungarvan.

Under 14
Our under 14 hurlers took on Lismore in the Under 14 Hurling Championship on Monday night last. At the time of going to print the result of this match was unavailable but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 13
After playing fantastic throughout our Under 13 team beat St. Pat’s on a score line 6-13 to 0-3. Let’s hope this group keep getting better as the championship goes on.

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.
