Club Notes - 16th December

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 37
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €7,800 as on Sunday night last Maurice O’Donnell was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 37 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Stags Hourigan and Jerry and Sarah won €25 each.  As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar and Crotty’s Corner Bar.

National Draw
Once again this year the GAA are holding a National Draw with tickets costing €10 each. There are some fantastic prizes on offer and like last year we are holding a Christmas Raffle for all those who purchase tickets for the National Draw before Christmas. Tickets are now available from Committee members and team managers.

Club Bingo
This Sunday our Bingo will continue in the CBS Hall where the Jackpot is €500. This Sunday night promises to be a very special night indeed at our bingo as it marks the 30th anniversary of our club bingo. Over those 30 years the bingo has provided us with much needed funds, and it is safe to say that without these funds we simply would not have been able to run our club in the manner which we have during that time. We are most grateful to our loyal supporters who continue to turn out in such great numbers every Sunday night, whilst we are indebted to the very small group who keep the bingo going every Sunday night and who have done so for the last 30 years. To celebrate the event this Sunday night we will have a number of extra prizes on offer, while there will no bingo on Sunday December 27th.

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.
