Juvenile Notes - 6th July

U12 Town & Country League
Our Under 12 team entertained Lismore at the club grounds for our final game in the Town & Country League. It was an enthralling encounter with both teams coming up with outstanding scores. Our boys played very well throughtout the game and ended up victorious at the final whistle. Our team was as follows: Rian Cosgrave, Eoin Kiely, Jack McGrath, Rory Tyrell, Seánie Callaghan, Michael Walsh, Andrew Norris, Charlie Gough, Jack Kiely, Charlie Treen, Conor Bohane, Oisín Brazil and Aidan Higgins. Well done to all involved.

Under 11
On a beautiful sunny Sunday morning last (July 3rd) in Abbeyside the U11's played their final Town & Country Hurling match against Fourmilewater. With two walkovers received, one win and one defeat, we wanted to finish with a victory and the boys duly obliged with probably their best performance for a long while when they beat a very strong Fourmile outfit and deservedly came away with the two points. Sean in goal made a couple of vital saves and with the strong defensive display from Jake F, Cathal, Jamie, Cormac & Kieran they kept the visitors chances to a minimum. Daniel and Jake O in midfield worked their socks off. Darragh W, Jack, Fionn, Brian & Darragh C caused their back line no end of trouble with a great forward line display. Conor, Ethan, Aodhan and Sam all played their part when introduced. Well done to all. Attention now turns to football but we'll have a couple of hurling challenges in the near future. Best wishes from us all to Sam Phelan who moves away this week. Sam made great progress when he joined the panel. Keep it up with your new club. Training continues Friday evenings 6 - 7pm.

Hard luck goes out to Darragh McGrath and Neil Montgomery who were part of the Waterford minor hurling team that lost out to Limerick in the Munster semi final in Walsh Park on Wednesday night last. Both did themselves proud throughout the course of the year.

Thank You
Thank you to anyone who helped out in any way with our flag days last weekend. This was a vital fundraiser and without help of parents and committee members this would not be possible to run.

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.

Under 16
Our Under 16 hurling team were due to play against Passage on Sunday morning last but this game was postponed at Passage’s request. This game will now have to be scheduled for a later date.

Under 10
Our Under 10 team played a football blitz in Ballinameela on Wednesday night last week. After some great football being played on the night our lads came away in third place overall. They were also due to play a hurling blitz last night (Tuesday) in Carriganore. At the time of going to print the results of this blitz were not available but will be included in next week’s notes.

Club History

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.
