Club Notes - 30th March

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 29
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s where the jackpot is €3,800 as on Sunday night last John David Power was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 29, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Bridget Meares and Denis Cosgrave 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
On Thursday night last we played The Nire in the Western Semi Final in Dungarvan, and after a very tough game we were defeated by the narrowest of margins. Whilst defeat was our lot on the night our young team can be extremely proud of their performance as they battled bravely throughout the match despite going into the game short a number of regulars and being reduced to 14 men. We thank the players and mentors for the commitment they showed to the team.

Senior Hurling
We played our first game of the Sargent Cup on Friday night last when we took on our neighbours Dungarvan in Fraher Field. In a match that raised funds for the local Sesame School it was Dungarvan who ran out deserving winners on the night.

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. We remind all those intending to join that March 31st is the closing date to pay.

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 CBS Hall with a jackpot of €1200.

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.
