Club Notes - 21st September

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 30
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connors where the jackpot is €8,800 as on Sunday night Aisling Cosgrave  was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 30, which when turned was not the Joker though she did win €50. John Ahearne and Jim Egan 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 Crotty’s Corner Bar.

Senior Hurling
On Saturday night last we were defeated by Mt Sion in our fourth game of the County Championship in Fraher Field. This Sunday we play Fourmilewater in Cappoquin in our final game in the league section of the championship, where victory would guarantee we progress to the knock out stages of the championship.

Junior Hurling
Both of our Junior Hurling teams were in Championship action last weekend, and both sides recorded impressive victories.  On Saturday our Junior A team defeated Dungarvan in Fraher Field and they now play St Marys in the semi final this Friday night in Fraher Field at 8:30 pm. On Sunday morning last our Junior B team defeated Melleray in Bushy Park to qualify for the semi final of the championship this Saturday afternoon where they play Cappoquin again in Bushy Park at 2:30pm

Progressive 45
The club will be staging a Progressive 45 Card Drive in Minnies Bar on Wednesday October 19th at 9pm. We will have more details on this event in the coming weeks.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo will continue this Sunday night, with a return to the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €600.

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.
