Juvenile Notes - 26th August

Underage Hurling
Underage hurling training for U5, 6, 7 and 8 will take place this Saturday morning 29th August in the club grounds. The session begins at 10:30. We are looking forward to seeing some of the new faces that participated in the ‘Hurling on the Green’ come and join in our regular Saturday sessions. All children are welcome to attend.

Minor Hurling
On Thursday last we took on Roanmore in the 5th round of the county minor hurling championship at home. After a good display by everyone involved we came away with victory on the night. We are now after winning all our matches in the group stages so far and have qualified for the knockout stages. Our next match at this level takes place on Thursday, 3rd September against Clonea in Clonea.

Under 16
On Monday of last week we took on De Le Salle in the under 16 hurling championship. On the night the city team were slicker and sharper to every ball and came away with a comprehensive victory. Our next match up here is next Monday night the 31st August at home to Mount Sion.

Under 15
Pride and place this week goes to our under 15 football team who on Sunday last won the Under 15 Western Football Final against a gallant St Oliver’s team. On the day the lads played some lovely football and many thanks must go to all the players and mentors involved.

Under 14
We were beaten in the 5th round of the County Under 14 Hurling Championship this week against Passage. Next match here is against Lismore in the quarter final on the 7th September.
We would like to wish everyone involved in the Tony Forristal and Sonny Walsh tournaments this weekend well. We have three players involved and of course we are represented on the Tony Forristal team by selector Michael Kelleher also.

Under 13
Our Under 13 hurlers were due to play Lismore last night Tuesday in the under 13 championship. At the time of going to print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.

Hurling on the Green
Hurling on the Green will take place this Wednesday night, 26th August between 7:00pm and 8:00pm in Sallybrook.

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.
