Conor Prunty - All-Ireland U21 Hurling Champion

Congratulations to Conor Prunty and all the Waterford U21 Hurling team and management on their superb 5-15 to 0-14 victory over Galway in the All-Ireland Final played at Semple Stadium, Thurles yesterday evening. Conor becomes the first Abbeyside / Ballinacourty player to win an All-Ireland Inter-County hurling title since Dónal Whelan and Austin Flynn won the Senior Hurling Championship in 1959 and joins Jim Burke, Paddy O'Connor, Johnny O'Connor, Maurice McHugh and Michael Hogan as the only other All-Ireland hurling winners from the club.

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.
