Club Notes - 2nd December

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 6
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €7,400 as on Sunday night last Judy Connors was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 6 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Michael Cosgrave and Dennis Cosgrave 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.

County Board Awards
On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Patrick Hurney and Conor Prunty who were honoured at the County Board Awards in Lawlors Hotel on Saturday night last. Patrick was chosen as Adult Footballer of the Year while Conor Prunty was picked as Underage Footballer of the Year. This is a fantastic honour for both Patrick and Conor, their families and indeed for all who have been involved in coaching the lads since they started playing football with the club. Once again we congratulate them both and hope they carry their good form into 2016.

Our Annual General Meeting will take place in Ballinroad Hall this Friday night, December 4th at 8pm, where we hope to see a big turnout of club members and intending members as we review the club activities in 2015 and look ahead to 2016.

Team Managers
Any member who is interested in managing any of our adult or under 21 teams in 2016 is asked to let Club Secretary Jonathan O’Donovan know by Wednesday, December 9th.

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 €1600.

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.
