Club Bingo

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Mrs. Margaret (Peggy) Hanrahan, Ballinacourty. The Hanrahan family is one that has been connected to our club for generations of the family and has given outstanding service both on and off the field to our club. Mrs.Hanrahan’s sons Michael, Laurence and Richie all wore the club jersey with distinction winning many County Titles, including the breakthrough Senior Championship in 1978 during illustrious playing careers and this commitment to our club continues to the present day as another generation of the family, Peggy’s grandsons, don the club jersey with pride. Again we extend our sympathy to the Hanrahan family but especially to Bernie, Mary, Michael, Laurence and Richie on their loss.

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.
