Club Notes - 7th December

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 43
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €4,000 as on Sunday night Margaret Duggan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 43 which wasn’t the Joker buts he did win €50. Maurice Fennell and Neil Moorewon €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.

Under 21 Hurling
Our Under 21 hurlers take on neighbours Dungarvan this Saturday night at 7pm in Fraher Field in the Western Final, where all support would be greatly appreciated.

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

Club Bingo
This week our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall at 8pm with a jackpot of €1150.

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.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathy to Audrey Hallahan and all the Hallahan family on the death of Mrs. Clare Hallahan last week. Audrey has done fantastic work for the club over the past number of years due to her involvement as Juvenile Secretary and once again we send our sympathies to Audrey on the passing of her mother.

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.
