Under 16 All-Ireland
Congratulations to Shauna McGrath who was a member of the Waterford panel who won the Under 16 All Ireland title recently. Shauna is the first member of our club to win an All-Ireland Camoige medal and we wish her every future success.
The girls have been busy in the last month with matches played against Gaultier, Tallow, Cappoquin and Roanmore. The games ended in victory for Abbeyside with a County Final place the reward for the hard work and skill shown by the girls.
The club would like to thank Power Transport for their kind sponsorship of socks for the final.
We would also like to wish the Abbeyside U13 footballers all the best in their county final next week-end.
Under 8 and 10
Training for these groups has now ended for the winter season and we would like to thank all those who helped with transport, First Aid etc at all the training sessions and blitzes etc that we took part in. A big thank you to Sean Kiely who came on board with this group this year and his coaching expertise helped in no small way in improving our membership.
Our sponsored walk from Clonea to Ballinacourty was a huge success and well done to all members, parents and sponsors who helped to raise nearly €2,000. A special word of thanks to Kevin Regan and Frank Sweeney, who were our main sponsors.
With Waterford winning All Ireland Camoige titles this year at Under 16 and adult levels there is a big opportunity for camoige to prosper and there is no reason why our club cannot be at the forefront in years to come. With more parents / supporters putting their shoulder to the wheel our club can become one of the leading clubs in Waterford in the years ahead. Finally thanks to Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club and to groundsmen Jimmy O’Leary and Michael O’Donovan for their continued support and commitment to our club.
