Juvenile Notes - 30th September

Under 14
On Monday last our Under 14 team travelled to Ballygunner to play in the semi final of the hurling championship. Despite their best efforts and some excellent displays by some players we were unable to match an excellent Ballygunner team on the night. Well done to this group of players and their mentors for their time and efforts during the year. A big thank you must go to Fergal Slevin, for his medical help during the match and a speedy recovery is wished to Michael Kiely on the injury he picked up.

Under 16
The Under 16’s travelled to Ballygunner last Sunday morning to play in the quarter final of the hurling championship. The team had a slow start to the game and trailed by nine points at half time. In the second half they played some of the best hurling they played all year which put them a point up with two minutes over time played but unfortunately a close in free was awarded to Ballygunner and the teams were level at the full time whistle.
The game went into extra time and despite our lads trying their hearts out Ballygunner got on top with a few quick scores early in extra time and went on to win the game and qualify for the semi finals.
Well done to this group of players and their mentors for their time and efforts during the year.

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurlers will play in the County Final this weekend. The match has been scheduled to be played on this Friday night coming at Carriganore. This group of players have trained very hard throughout the whole year and hopefully with a bit of luck on the night they will be successful. They take on Clann na Gael who they beat by a tight margin earlier on in the championship. Throw in at Carriganore is at 7:00pm and support for the lads on the night would be very much appreciated. We wish all the players and mentors involved all the best and hopefully they can add a hurling crown to the football title that they won earlier in the year.

It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane.

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.
