Club Notes - 26th August

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 1
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €4,600 as on Sunday night last Laurance Power was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 1 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Ned C/O Crow and Rita Power 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 Crotty’s Corner Bar.

Senior Football
On Saturday last our Senior Footballers returned to winning ways with a hard fought win over Ardmore in Fraher Field. We have one game remaining in the group stages of the Championship against Clashmore, which hasn’t be fixed yet.

Senior Hurling
This Sunday at 2pm we play Ballygunner in Kill in our 4th game of the Championship.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Eoin Enright and Sarah O’Brien who announced their engagement recently.

Bon Voyage
As most of our supporters and members are probably aware by now Shane Briggs will not be available to our Senior teams for the remainder of this year or next year as he has travelled to Dubai where he has taken a teaching job for 2 years. Since making his adult debut as a 16 year old back in 1998 Shane has been an ever present on both hurling and football teams winning 3 County Senior Football and 2 Intermediate Hurling County titles along with many other underage titles. Throughout this time Shane always gave of his all in the club jersey and it is indeed an understatement that he will be sorely missed on both teams. We wish Shane the very best during his time in Dubai and hopefully he will return to wear the Club Jersey in the future.

Club Bingo
Our Club Bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €950.

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.
