Juvenile Notes - 13th July

Primary Game
Well done to Rian Walsh who represented Waterford in the Primary Game on Sunday last in Limerick. On a day where all did not run smoothly for our senior team, Rian represented his club, family and county with pride. This was a wonderful achievement for this very talented player and hopefully it will be the first of many big Munster championship matches for the player.

Under 16
We were due to play our first championship match in the Under 16 Hurling Championship last night (Tuesday) against Ballygunner. At the time of going to print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 14
Under 14 hurling training continues every Monday and Wednesday night at the club grounds.

Under 13
We played our first championship match in the Under 13 Hurling Championship on Monday night last against Dungarvan. At the time of print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 10
We took part in an Under 10 hurling blitz in Carriganore on Monday night of last week. We played some fantastic hurling throughout and came away with two wins and one defeat.

On Wednesday night last we took on neighbours Dungarvan in the county minor football semi final. Despite missing a few regulars the lads raised their efforts on the night to come away with victory. We have now set up a county final date which was due to be played on Monday night last against a strong Gaultir outfit. Again at the time of going to print the result of this match was not available but will be included in next week’s notes. We wish all the players and management involved well in their pursuit of victory.

Our academy training sessions will continue this Saturday morning for players between under 5 and under 10 at the club grounds between 10.30 and 11.30.

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.
