Juvenile Notes - 4th May

Under 11
We got our Town & Country campaign finally up and running after the Dungarvan game was cancelled, on Thursday evening the 28th when we travelled to Colligan to play St. Pats. On a lovely but cold evening we played some great hurling and deservedly came away with the victory. Thanks to St. Pats for agreeing to change the game to Thursday instead of the Friday. Panel on the night - Sean Walsh, Cathal Sweeney, Jake Fitz Drummey, Jake O Donnell, Ethan Keohan, Daniel Morrisey, Kieran Cosgrave, Billy O Donnell, Brian Callaghan, Jack O Donovan, Jamie Mulcahy, Sean Queally, Darragh Cosgrave, Fionn Murchu, Conor Gough, Cormac Dunne Fitzgerald, Aodhan Barrett, Sam Phelan. Missing on the night was Darragh Walsh who we wish a speedy recovery from injury. Training this evening (Wednesday 7pm - 8pm) & Friday 6pm - 7pm.

Under 13 and 10
Our Under 13 football team were due to play against Stradbally on Monday night last in the championship in a must win game. At the time of going to print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.
Our under 10 team meanwhile travel to Carriganore on Saturday next to take part in a hurling blitz and we all hope they have a great day out.

Under 9
Our Under 9 team played An Gaelteacht, St Pats, Dungarvan and Cappoquin in the last two weeks and some great hurling and football was played by all. Last Saturday morning some of the club senior players got involved in the training sessions and the young boys really enjoyed it. Thank you must go to the senior lads for giving up their time and hopefully we can make this a regular event. A big thank you also goes to the parents for their continued support. Best wishes to the boys from this group and the girls of the parish who are making their First Holy Communion this weekend. We all hope that they all and their families have a great day.

Well done to our five representatives on the county minor football team last Wednesday night in Leamybrien where they took on Limerick. While defeat was their lot on the night the team began the game very well before coming up against a stronger Limerick team in the second half. All the lads trained hard for this championship and they were a credit to themselves their families and their club at all times.
We also had a number of representatives on the under 16 West Waterford team who won the Gleeson cup against their East counterparts recently. Well done to all. We also have a number of players on the under15 development squad as well as the Tony Forristal and Sonny Walsh panels.

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

Bag Pack
The juvenile club are holding their annual bag pack fundraiser on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June in Garveys Super value. 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 Feile
You can now check out the new facebook page Abbeyside/Ballinacourty and Camogie Feile 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.

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.
