Under 10
We played Cappoquin at Under 10 level last Monday night. 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 13
We played Fourmilewater in the Under 13 Hurling Championship on Saturday last. On the day the lads played well and came away with victory to set up a Western Final date against Naomh Brid on Saturday next at 12.30 in Fraher Field, Dungarvan. Best of luck to all involved.

Well Done
Well done to William Besresford who represented the club on All Ireland final day in Croke Park. On the day William was wearing Tipperary colours but hopefully sometime in future William will be wearing Waterford colours at headquarters and representing Waterford in big games. Well done William.

Training will continue on Saturday morning next between 10.30 and 11.30 for our academy sessions for players between under 6 and 9.

Under 14
Our Under 14 hurlers were due to take on Passage on Monday night last in the quarter final of the Under 14 County Championship. 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 11
We headed to Ballymac on Friday night last in the third round of the Town and Country Western Football League where we took on the Nire. After some brilliant play by the lads we had a good lead at half time. In the second half the Nire got some quick scores and brought them right back into the game. We steadied the ship however with some excellent point scoring of our own and won the match in the end after a very entertaining 40 minutes of football. The next round is against St Pats at home on Friday the 16th September.

We will play our local neighbours Dungarvan on Wednesday night next the 7th of September in the 6th round of the County Minor Hurling Championship. This will double as the Kieran Lennon trophy who was a clubman who gave his all to the club before his untimely death.

Under 16
Our Under 16 hurling team beat De Le Salle last Wednesday night in the County Under 16 Hurling Championship. We have now qualified for the quarter final where we will take on Passage on the 14th September.

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.
