Juvenile Notes - 27th July

Hurling on the Green
Cruchan, River Lane & Waters Edge hosted our 2nd HOTG session of 2016 on Wed last 20th July. We had some brilliant sunshine and a big turnout of children, in addition to lots of residents who came out to witness the event.
Special guest on the evening was Caoimhe McGrath, a member of the Waterford Ladies football team. Caoimhe has progressed through our underage structures to emerge as a key member of the ladies football team and also is an accomplished camogie player.
Thanks to the residents & everyone who contributed to making the event such a success and to Eoin Breathnach, Waterford GAA Games Development Officer, who was on hand to support the event.
This week we are heading to McCarthyville on Thursday next 28th July.  This session covers McCarthyville, Murphy Place, Kyne Park, The Hermitage, Park Lane, Sea Park & surrounding areas. Registration commences at 6:30pm, with activities running from 7 to 8 pm.
Our 4th session will be held in Páirc Na mBláth, Ballinroad on Wed 3rd August.

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.
