Club Notes - 11th January

Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €5,000 as on Sunday night Margret Duggan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 3 which wasn’t the Joker buts she did win €50. Sebastian Byrne and Lauren Cliffe won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Corner Bar.

As the playing season draws ever nearer we would ask all members both playing and ordinary to please get your membership paid as soon as possible. It can be paid to Membership Officer Pat Keane or any Committee Member. The onus is on intending members to hand their membership fee over and players should be aware that they are not eligible to play for the club if they don’t pay their membership.

Field Bookings
We ask that all team managers book their times for training / matches with Michael O’Donovan in advance of returning to training. Managers must notify Michael in advance if they wish to change from their allocated time.

National Draw
Tickets are currently for sale from all Committee members for the GAA National Draw. There are some fantastic prizes on offer such as a car and holidays, but the great thing about the draw is that the club retains all of the €10 which the ticket costs. Therefore you are doing your bit to support the club whilst also having a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

Club Bingo
This week our club bingo session continues in the Park Hotel at 8pm with a jackpot of €1350.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Kevin Casey, Dunmore East who passed away last week. During his ten years working with WLR FM Kevin endeared himself to all sports fans across the county with his excellent sports programmes and his wonderful personality. It’s certainly fair to say that Kevin was one of life’s gentlemen and we send our sympathies to his wife Marguerite, their three young sons and all Kevin’s family.

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.
