Club Notes - 24th February

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 7
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €2,800 as on Sunday night last Callum Ferncombe was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 7, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Declan Byrne and the Morning Club 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.

Munster Junior Football Semi Final
This Sunday afternoon last our Junior B Footballers made the long journey to Knockaderry in Limerick to take on Sneem Derrynane of Kerry in the Semi Final of the Munster Junior Football Competition. This competition is organised by the Knockaderry club and has been held for the past number of years for the winners of the County Junior B Football Championships. On the day our opponents proved too strong for us and ran out deserving winners. Well done to the players and management for making the long trip on Sunday and for representing the club so well.

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 the CBS Hall with a jackpot of €950.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to family and friends of the late Francie McGovern, McCarthyville who passed away recently.

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.
