Under 16
Our U16 football team were due to play in the county semi final at home to Gaultir last night (Tuesday) at 7pm. At the time of going to print the result of this match was not known but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 13 and 10
Our Under13 football team are due to play in the western semi final this week against Cois Brid. The time of this game and date can be gotten from either the players involved or the management team. Everyone wishes all the players involved the very best of luck.
The Under 10 team were due to play a hurling blitz in Carriganore last Saturday morning but due to poor weather the blitz had to be cancelled but will be run off at a later date.

Under 14 and Féile
The Under 14 team play their last league game away to Ring tonight (Wednesday). A full report on this match will be available next week. Meanwhile Féile preparations are going really well at present with the date of the event very fast approaching. All credit must go to the committee that was formed for this event and everyone who is involved in the project in any small way. We will be launching a Golden Goal for the Waterford versus Clare championship match shortly and all support would be greatly appreciated.

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

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 feile 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.

Underage Hurling
Our weekly juvenile training sessions for five to nine year olds continues this Saturday morning between 10.30 and 11.30. We had another big number out last Saturday morning for hurling and football sessions and hopefully this will continue.

Old Hurleys
The club would like to ask all parents if they have any old hurleys that they no longer use could they give them into any academy coach or to our equipment officer Sean Fischer. We would very much appreciate any hurleys regardless of age or condition. 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.
