Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor's where the jackpot is €2,000 as on Sunday night last Stephen Prendergast was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 35, which when turned was the Joker so Stephen collects the Jackpot of €8,800. Martina Barry and Jim Egan 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. Tickets are now available from Committee members and team managers.

Medal Presentation
This Saturday evening at 7:30pm we will hold our Medal Presentation evening in Scoil Mhuire Hall, where all club members and supporters are most welcome to attend. On the night we will be presenting medals to our Minor Hurling and Football side who won both County Titles, to our Under 21 Football team who won the Western Title and to our Junior Footballers who won the Western and County Titles. This promises to be a most enjoyable evening and once again all are welcome to attend.

Club Text
If any member of the club would like to receive texts from club secretary Jonathan O’Donovan informing them of the death of club members or other items of club information they should contact Jonathan by this Sunday evening.

We would like to remind intending members and especially players that membership fees are now due and can be paid to Kevin Tobin or any team manager. We would ask players to make a special effort to pay their membership before returning to training to ensure they are covered by insurance.

Booking of Pitches
As teams start back training over the next few weeks we remind all team managers that they must book the pitches / astro turf with Michael Donovan prior to training and also managers are asked to remember that the main pitch remains closed until further notice.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall with a jackpot of €750.

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.
