Juvenile Notes - 6th April

Underage Hurling
Our underage hurling sessions on Saturday morning for Under 6 to Under10 has been brought forward this week (Sat April 9th only) and will begin at 10 am and will finish and 11 am due to camogie activities taking place in the club grounds from midday. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience. Training times will then go back to normal the following week.

We would ask all parents and mentors could they please return their membership forms to Suzanne Gough as soon as possible for insurance reasons.

Under 11
Bank Holiday Monday we travelled down to Mount Sion for our first outing of the year. This was a good run out for the boys but had to give way to a strong Mount Sion team. Friday (Apr 1st) we were due to go to Lismore but like the first day we tried to play Mount Sion the rain put an end to this with the pitch unplayable. This Friday we will train at 5:30 till 6:30. Please note change of time for this week. April 15th we play neighbours Dungarvan in the first round of the Town & Country League in Abbeyside at 6:30.

Under 10 and 13
Our Under 10 football team travelled to the Nire on the bank holiday Monday just gone and enjoyed their day out. This busy group of players were also due to play Ring on Monday just gone and hopefully they will have played as well as they did in Ballymacarbry the week before.
Also the Under13 football team are due to play the next round of their championship against Cois Brid this week.

Under 8
Unfortunately our under eight team once again fell foul to the poor weather on Saturday morning last when their blitz got postponed for the second week in a row. At the time of writing another date for this blitz to go ahead in Carriganore has not been pencilled in but will be included here in these notes once a date of the re fixture has been announced. This group will train this week at the slightly earlier time of 10 am till 11 am.

Kelloggs Cúl Camp
Our camp for the Kelloggs 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 14
Our Under14 football team were due to play Dungarvan on Sunday morning last but due to the weather this game had to be postponed. This game has now been changed to Friday night next.

Under 16
Our Under16 football team played against An Rinn on Bank Holiday Monday last. After a good display throughout our boys came away with a 3-11 to 0-5 win. They were also due to play De Le Salle on Wednesday night last but this game was called off due to the bad weather and a date of the re fixture is not available at this time. The next game for this group is pencilled in for April the 18th against Gaultir in Abbeyside.

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.
