Australian Visit

On Thursday night last, our club welcomed the Wanderers Australian Rules U15 and U16 teams to the Burgery for two games under lights against Ballinacourty's age equivalent players. The rules were a hybrid of Gaelic Football and Australian Rules and the games proved to be very entertaining with tremendous skill on display from both panels. Three of the four quarters were played with the round ball while the final period saw the oval ball being used. We would like to thank the Australian players, mentors and parents for their visit and wish them a safe journey home. Thanks to Audrey Hallahan for providing us with the photos below which are a wonderful record of the event.

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.
