Juvenile Notes - 20th April

All in the juvenile club would like to congratulate all the children of the parish who were confirmed on Friday last.

Underage Hurling
Our weekly juvenile training sessions for five to nine year olds continues this Saturday morning between 10.30 and 11.30.

Kelloggs Cúl Camp
Our camp for the Kellogs Cúl Camp this year is from the 4th to the 8th July. This is always a great camp and we always have big numbers attending. To book your place on this camp you can do so online on

Under 8
Our Under8 football team take part in a blitz on Saturday morning next in Carriganore at 11 am. Hopefully all the lads will enjoy the experience.

Under 14
We played Killrosanty in the Under 14 championship on Sunday morning last. This was a very competitive game throughout and at the end of the hours play the game ended in a draw which was overall a fair result. Our next game here is in the Féile semi final where we take on Gaultir on this Friday night coming. We wish all involved the very best of luck.

Under 10 and 13
Our Under13 football team had a great win in the championship on Wednesday night last where they defeated an unbeaten Gaultir side. This was a must win game for our lads who had lost their two previous outings. However all credit must go to our team who showed great determination through-out and deserved their victory in the end. The next game for this group will be on Sunday morning next the 24th where they will take on Tramore.
It was a quiet week for the Under 10 team last week and they will continue training away at their usual times.

Under 11
Unfortunately the Town and Country League did not start for our lads on Friday night last as Dungarvan were not able to make the trip on the night. Hopefully this game will be rearranged soon. Our next opponents in this age group are Saint Pats and training will continue as usual on Friday night between 6 and 7.

Facebook for Feile
You can now check out the new facebook page Abbeyside/Ballinacourty and Camogie Féile 2016 for updates on the upcoming Féile news. A big thank you must go to Sharon Kiely for setting this up.

Thank You
We wish to thank Barry Dunne from the Coaching Games and Development Committee for helping out with the training session for the Syrian boys and girls who once again visited our club on Saturday morning last. Also thanks to Paul, Joe, Pat and Audrey for their assistance. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and are showing great enthusiasm for the skills of our national games.

Bag Pack
The juvenile club are holding their annual bag pack fundraiser on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June in Garveys SuperValu. This fundraiser is vital to raise adequate funding for the juvenile club and all parents are asked to help out volunteering their time. We respectfully ask parents to volunteer two hours on any one of these days to achieve a successful outcome. Please contact our juvenile secretary Audrey on 087(6987388) if you would be willing to help. All help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

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.
