Club Notes - 23rd November

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 30
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €3,600 as on Sunday night Alan Tobin was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 30 which wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. The Morning Club and Theresa McGovern 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 Crottys Corner Bar.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Lismore on their fantastic victory in the Munster Club Intermediate Hurling Final on Saturday last. We would also like to wish The Nire the best of luck with their Munster Senior Football Final this Sunday in Mallow.

Our dancers have commenced their training and are currently learning the group dance. Tickets for the event are priced at €20 & are available from all thedancers as well as Revival Beauty, Main Street, Dungarvan & Village Flowers, Sexton Street, Abbeyside.

Under 21 Hurling
This Saturday afternoon we take on Comeragh Gaels in the Western Semi Final at 2:30pm in Fraher Field.

Our AGM will take place on Friday night December 9th at 8pm in Abbeyside School Hall.

Club Bingo
This week our club bingo session moves to The Park Hotel for what promises to be a great afternoon where there will be €3000 in prizemoney.

Team Managers
Any person who is interested in managing our Adult teams in 2017 is asked to submit their name to Jonathan O’Donovan by December 8th at 8pm. For 2017 the Club Committee have decided that both of our senior teams will be managed by the same person so those submitting their names must be willing to take on the responsibility of managing both teams. This practice is also to be implemented with our Junior / Intermediate and Under 21 teams where the management teams must take the teams in both codes.

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.
