Club Notes - 23rd December

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 49
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €8,000 as on Sunday night last Brian O’Connor was  drawn out of the drum and chose card number 49 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Michael Cosgrave and Jim Egan won €25 each. Tom Tobin, Kevin Tobin, Siobhan Murray and Emma Flynn all won €25 in the extra Christmas Draw. 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.

Christmas Wishes
On behalf of all our club members we would like to welcome home all those who have travelled home to Abbeyside for the Christmas holidays, especially those who are returning home from abroad. Also we would like to send Christmas wishes to the editor and staff of the Dungarvan Observer and Dungarvan Leader and to thank them for all their help and assistance throughout the year.
Nollaig Shona agus athbhliain faoi shéan ‘s faoi shonas daoibh go léir.

Intermediate Football
On Saturday night last a very enjoyable function took place in The Gold Coast Hotel to mark the 50th anniversary of the club winning the County Intermediate Football Title and take our place in the ranks of Senior Football for the first time. It was great to see so many people in attendance and all agreed that it was a very enjoyable evening.

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.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Martin Lavan and Emma Coleman who were married last weekend. We wish them both many years of happiness together.

Club Bingo
There will be no club bingo this Sunday night and it will resume on January 3rd with a jackpot of €550.

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.
