Club Notes - 2nd March

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 19
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Monday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €3,000 as on Sunday night last Eddie O’Halloran was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 19, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Anthony Whelan 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.

Under 21 Football
Our under 21 footballers made the trip to Carriganore last Monday night to take on The Nire in the first round of the Western Championship. At the end of a very competitive game of football we emerged victorious and advance to the Semi Finals of the championship.

Abbeyside Sports Awards
This Sunday night at 8:30 pm in Minnies Bar the Annual Abbeyside Sports Awards will once again be presented to those who have made a valuable contribution to the various sporting bodies in our community. The O’Brien family have generously sponsored these awards for a number of years now and on Sunday night a number of members of our club will be presented with awards. Also on the night there will be a tribute to the late Michael Collins and for this reason we would ask as many club members as possible to call along on the night and show your support for these awards.

Intercounty Activity
On Sunday last the Waterford senior footballers recorded their first win in the Allianz National Football league with a comprehensive victory over Carlow. Stephen Enright, Brian Looby, Conor Prunty, Patrick Hurney and Michael O’Halloran all played their part in the victory whilst Eoin Bergin and James O’Mahony are also on the panel. We wish them the very best of luck ahead of this Saturday night’s game against Wexford in Fraher Field.

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 CBS Hall with a jackpot of €1000.

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.
