Club Notes - 3rd February

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 38
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s where the jackpot is €2,200 as on Sunday night last Joe Kelly was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 38, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Jimmy Lennihan and Lalu O’Connor 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 Crottys 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
On Saturday night last there was a fantastic turnout to our medal presentation in Scoil Mhuire, Abbeyside. On the night we presented medals to our victorious Minor, Under 21 and Junior teams and we thank Patrick Hurney and Conor Prunty for presenting the medals on the night. After the medal presentation Club Chairman Bernard Shields made a presentation to both Patrick and Conor to mark their selection as Footballer of the Year and Underage Footballer of the Year respectively for 2015. We would like to thank Scoil Mhuire for the use of their facilities, Pat O’Brien for the fabulous food he provided and the ladies who helped with serving the food to all those present.

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 O’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 Park Hotel with a jackpot of €800.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Cyril Healy, Ballycoe 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.
