Club Notes - 20th July

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 21
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €7,000 as on Sunday night last Tom Walsh was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 21, which when turned was not the Joker though he did win €50. Thomas Kiely and Timmy Organ won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crottys Corner Bar.

Under 21 Hurling
On Wednesday night last the County Under 21 hurlers recorded a fantastic win over Clare in Walsh Park in the Munster Semi Final where Conor Prunty played very well in the half back line. We wish Conor and all the team the very best of luck ahead of next week’s Munster Final against Tipperary again in Walsh Park.

Welcome Home
On behalf of all in the club we would like to welcome Fr Colin Fives home for his annual holidays from the missions in Nigeria. We hope Fr Colin enjoys his break and of course gets to see plenty of wins for the club and Waterford while he is home.

Junior Football
On Friday night last we played  Affane in Bushy Park  in the Western Championship and despite putting in a very brave performance we were defeated by the minimum margin.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo will continue this Sunday night, but it sees a change of venue to The Park Hotel with a jackpot of €2,000.

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.
