Hurling on the Green
Click here to see details of our new initiative.

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurlers were in action against the Brickies in their first game of the minor hurling championship in Bushy Park on Monday night of last week. Despite not playing well and coming up against a very determined Brickies 15 the lads continued to battle away throughout to come away with an important victory. Next up is a home game against Mount Sion on Sunday the 19th July.

Under 16
Our Under 16 hurling championship got up and running on Monday night last against Ballygunner. At the time of going to press the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 13 and 14
On Saturday next our Under 13 hurlers take on Fourmilewater in the Under 13 hurling championship at home.
Meanwhile our Under 14 hurling team get their championship up and running on Monday night next against Ballygunner. We wish all the very best of luck.
On the weekend just gone our Under 14 footballers had five representatives on the county Under 14 football team for the annual Jim Power tournament. Each represented themselves their families and their county well on the day. The five players were namely Michael Kiely, Sean Roche, Cian O’Riordan, Senan Travers and Eoin Ahearne. Well done to all.
Shane Kiely, Eoin Flynn and Daithi Brunnock were in action for the county Under 15 football team also at the weekend.

Under 12
Our Under 12 hurling team played in the Town and Country Under 12 hurling league on Friday night last at home where we came up against a Naomh Brid team that were very hungry. We lost this game in the end by five points. This week we take part in a blitz in Clonea Power at this age group where there will be teams from all over Munster and Leinster taking part. Hopefully everyone involved will have a great day out.

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.
