Photo of the Week

1955 Senior Hurling Match v Blackrock
This week's photo comes from 1955 and shows the throw-in for a Senior Hurling Challenge Match between Abbeyside and Blackrock of Cork in Fraher Field. In those days all the forwards and midfielders lined up for the throw-in which made for a very crowded centre area of the pitch. Abbeyside players visible include M. O'Connor, R. Ruske, D. O'Connor and D. Whelan and A. Foley who are partially hidden by Blackrock players.
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.
