Club Notes - 27th April

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 16
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €4,600 as on Sunday night last Brian O’Donovan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 16, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Nuala Keneally and Audrey Hallahan 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, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Corner Bar.

Senior Football
We played out second match in the County Senior Championship on Saturday night last when we took on St Saviour’s in Kill. After what can only be described as a disappointing performance, with a few exceptions, we fell to a two points defeat. After only taking one point from our opening two games we must now redouble our efforts for the rest of the year ahead of the last 3 games in the championship, to ensure we qualify for the knock out stages of the Championship.

Junior Football
Our Junior Footballers played their second game of the Western Championship on Sunday last where despite putting in a brave performance we were defeated by Old Parish.

Junior ‘A’ Hurling
We get our Championship campaign underway this Friday night when we play Fourmilewater in Colligan at 7:30 pm.

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 €1400.

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.
