Juvenile Notes - 2nd March

Féile Fast Approaching
We intend to hold a sponsored walk and run on the 13th March at 5.30 pm in aid of  Feile 2016. Everyone is welcome to participate including young and old, so grab your trainers and put this date in your diary and help raise a few Euro to host this prestigious event in June.

Under 16
Our under 16 footballers were due to play their first championship game at the weekend away to Tramore. However due to a waterlogged field in Tramore this game had to be postponed and will be played at a later date in the year. The next game that we know of in this championship is in three weeks time.

Under 14
We play our first game of the year in the Under 14 Football Championship this Sunday morning coming away to Gaultir. This was ment to be this groups second game of the year but due to unfavourable conditions two weeks ago this is their first game out. We wish all involved well and hopefully it will be a long year for all.We hope also that the weather picks up in the next week to allow this game to be played.

Under 9
The Under 9 football team played a blitz in Buhadoon on Saturday morning last. This was this groups first outing of the year in football and all enjoyed their day out. It is back to the field on this Saturday morning for this group of players for our normal outdoor hurling sessions. New members for this group are always welcome.

Membership for 2016 for our juvenile players is now due. We ask for parents to co-operate with us and pay the membership as soon as possible. This is to make sure that all players are insured as if they are not members they are not insured which is outside our control.

Under 11
Under eleven hurling training continues this Friday night between 6 and 7 pm. New members are always welcome and membership forms will be handed out on the night.

Under 10 and 13
Training for the Under 10 and Under 13 age groups will go ahead again this Friday night in the wall ball. The Under 10 team will train between 7 and 8 pm and the Under 13 team will train between 8 and 9 pm. All are welcome to attend.

Outdoor Hurling
The underage outdoor hurling season continued on Saturday morning last for the groups between Under 5 and Under 8. The Under 9 team would usually be included in these sessions too but were playing a blitz last weekend. This Under 9 group will continue as normal this weekend out in the field for their usual Saturday morning session. These sessions continue this Saturday March 5th 2016 for anyone between the ages of Under 6 and Under 9. New members are always welcome and hurleys and helmets will be available on the day. These sessions will continue weekly on a Saturday morning between 10.30 am and 11.30 for the foreseeable future. This Saturday which is March 5th will be allocated as a membership day where we hope to collect all the membership for the relevant age groups.

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.
