Kelloggs Cúl Camp
Our camp for the kellogs Cul 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

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.

Facebook for Féile
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.

We would ask all parents who have not yet paid the membership to do so as soon as possible for insurance reasons.

Under 8
Our Under 8 team took part in a football blitz in Carriganore on Saturday morning last. The kids had a great day out and the day seemed to be enjoyed by all. Special thanks must go to the parents who travelled on the day. Training continues for this group on Saturday morning at 10.30.

Under 14
We played the Under 14 Féile Football semi final on Friday last against Gaultir. We tried hard throughout the game but in the end we lost out to a very strong city team.

Under 16
We beat Gaultir last Monday night in Abbeyside in the Under 16 Football Championship on a score line of 2-15 to 1-6. This win has qualified us for the semi finals which will be played on Sunday 8th May.

Under 13 and Under 10
Our Under13 football team got a walkover against Tramore at the weekend and our next match here is against Stradbally next week. If we win this game we will have qualified for the semi final so we wish all the lads well.
Our under 10 team are still training hard for their upcoming annual Ballyduff tournament.

County Minor
We had five representatives on the county minor football panel that lost out to All Ireland champions Kerry in the Fraher Field on Wednesday two weeks ago. On the night Waterford lost out to an extremely strong Kerry team who are going for a three in a row of All Ireland titles. The lads lost nothing in defeat and acquitted themselves well on the night. The players involved were namely James Beresford who captained the team, Aoron Beresford, Tony Collins, Sean Whealan Barrett and Tom Looby. My sincere apologies to all concerned for the omission of this piece last week. They play Limerick tonight Wednesday in Leamybrien in the next round and we wish all the lads well and hopefully a large turnout from Abbeyside/Ballinacourty will be present on the night.
Well done also to Neil Montgomery and Darragh McGrath who were involved with the county minor hurling team on Saturday last where they had a great win over Tipperary at Walsh Park. Well done lads.

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.
