Juvenile Notes - 16th September

Club Day 2015
On this Saturday 19th September, from 10.30 to 12.30, we will be holding our annual in house club blitz from U10's to U5's. There are a number of trophies up for grabs for winning teams. To coincide with this event, we would like to welcome back ALL that joined us for ANY of the nights of "Hurling on the Green" that was held over the summer to participate in the games or just to practice some of the other skills they learned. We will have plenty of coaches and mentors to assist at all levels. After the fun and games, we will be serving plenty of refreshments and each child will receive a goody bag with a special momento from the club! Please spread the word to your neighbours and friends who might like to join us.

Well Done
All in the club would like to congratulate all those who have received their Junior Cert results in the last week.

Minor Hurling
Best of luck to our minor hurling team who take on Clonea Power in the semi final of the County Championship tonight (Wednesday 16th September) at the Fraher Field at 6.45pm. We are up against it here as only last week Clonea beat us in the group stages of the championship. However if the lads show as much skill and determination as they did in earlier rounds of the championship we will be in this game with a fifty-fifty chance.

Under 15 Football
Hard luck to our Under 15 football team who on Saturday morning last lost out in the county final of the Under 15 football competition. We were up against very strong opponents on the day in De le Salle who deserved their win on a score line of 2-5 to 1-4. Congratulations to De Le Salle and commiserations to our lads who did themselves proud on the day. A big thank you must go to all the players and mentors involved at this age group.

Under 14 Hurling
Our Under 14 hurling team take part in the county semi final of the hurling championship on Monday night next away to a strong Ballygunner team. Good luck to all.

Under 9 Hurling
Our Under 9 team travelled to the annual Roanmore tournament on Saturday morning last. On what was a beautiful day for hurling a great day was had by all those involved. We played three games and in the end won 2 and drew one match. These lads are making great progress with every match they play and showed some great hurling flare on the day. A big thank you to all the parents that travelled on the day and to the mentors involved who were Eoin Enright and Eoin Kiely. After the days hurling the lads were presented with their medals by All Ireland Kilkenny medalist Ger Aylward.

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.
