Club Notes - 22nd February

Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €6,200 as on Sunday Roisin Briggs was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 25 which wasn’t the Joker but she did win €50. Michael O’Donovan and Rosario Donovan 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.

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.

Post Primary Schools Games
On Saturday last St. Augustine’s College had a fantastic win over Coláiste Treasa Kanturk in the Munster Colleges Senior Hurling Final in Golden. There was a very strong club representation on the team with 7 starters on the team and two more introduced as subs with many more included in the panel. It was great to see so many supporters from the club present to cheer on the team, and it was wonderful to see Neil Montgomery accepting the trophy after the game. We thank the teachers who put so much work into preparing the team, and wish the team the very best of luck in this Saturday’s Munster Football Final in Bansha where they take on Clare side Spanish Point at 12:30pm. Again we appeal to as many supporters as possible to get along and support the team as they attempt to win a Munster Double.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night with a jackpot of €550.

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.
