Juvenile Notes - 2nd December

Well done to Garranbane National School who on Tuesday morning last won the Primary Schools County Final of the Boys A Football. They played Ballygunner National School in the final and they trailed at half time by a goal. However with the wind in the second half the boys rallied to win by a point in the end. Great scenes of jubilation were witnessed at the final whistle. Well done to all the players involved in this great win and to all the teachers in Garranbane who put in so much work into the promotion of our games.

Australian Rules
On Thursday night of next week, 10th December we are hosting two groups of Australian Rules teams. On the night there will be two compromise rules games played at under 15 and under 16 age groups. This will be a great opportunity for our lads in the club to pit themselves against opposition from the other side of the world in a game which they have never played before with different rules on tackling etc than our own game. The games will kick off at 5.30pm and 6.30pm respectively and everyone is invited to come along for a spectacle which should be great entertainment 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.
