Juvenile Notes - 25th November

Under 15 Hurling
The final under age fixture for the year in the club was concluded on Sunday morning last with a 3-7 to 0-8 win for our Under 15 hurlers against Roanmore, to win the Division 1 County Title. This was a close contest for most of the game with us leading by a point at half time. In the second half our lads played some wonderful hurling to win well in the end. Well done to all the players and mentors that were involved. A word of thanks must go to the parents of the team for their support throughout the year driving to training and to matches etc. Everyone can now enjoy a short break before play for this group resumes early in the New Year.

U15 Division 1 County Hurling Champions, 2015

Congratulations to Garranbane NS who recently won the Schools A Football Western Championship against Ballymacarbry NS. This was a wonderful achievement by all involved and they were due to play the county final yesterday (Tuesday) in Abbeyside against Ballygunner. At the time of going to print however the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes. A big thank you must go to all the teachers involved in our parish schools who put so much time and effort into the promotion of our national games in their respective schools.

Table Quiz
A big thank you to all who supported our table quiz on Friday last to raise funds for the upcoming trip of two Australian rules teams. We would like to thank all those who put together a table for the quiz and all those who donated a spot prize on the night. Also we would like to thank our host on the night Brendan O’Brien for going about his work in his usual professional way. Also thanks to Pat O’Brien in Minnies for providing us with a venue on the night.

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.
