Club Notes - 18th January

Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €5,200 as on Sunday night Teresa Keane was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 37 which wasn’t the Joker but she did win €50. Jim and Ken and Seanu Kiely 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 Crottys Corner Bar.

Medal Presentation
This Saturday night at 8:30 pm in Minnies Bar we will be presenting the Western Under 21 ‘A’ medals to our victorious team from 2016. We would ask all our members to come along on the night and show your appreciation to this young team who showed great spirit in winning the Western Title last year.

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.

Club Leisure Wear
We are currently finalising the design for our new club leisure wear which will be worn by all club teams in 2017 and 2018. This leisure wear will be available to buy directly from the club to all club members from 5 years up, and is sure to be very popular with all our loyal supporters. Please keep an eye on our club website, Facebook page and Twitter for details of where orders can be placed. As it will personalised with initials we will require full payment upfront when ordering the gear.

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 8:30pm with a jackpot of €1400.

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.
