Club Notes - 23rd August

Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O'Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €2800 as on Sunday night Jim Egan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 11 which when turned was not the joker but he did win €50. Chopper Hayes and Sharon and Gully 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 Bar.

Junior Hurling
On Friday night last we took on Shamrocks in our final game of the league section in the Junior C championship in Tourin. At the end of a competitive game of hurling it was our opponents who emerged victorious by a goal. Despite this loss we have qualified for the knockout stages of the championship.

Western Junior Final
We play Ballyduff Upper in the Western final of the Junior B Hurling Championship in Cappoquin at 7pm on Friday evening next, September 1st.

All Ireland Hurling Final Draw
As you may be aware we are holding a raffle for 2 All Ireland Hurling Final tickets with accommodation in the Clayton Burlington Hotel on the night before the match. Tickets cost €5 each or 3 for €10 and are on sale from any player or committee member. So far there has been a fantastic response to the draw so be sure to buy your ticket if you haven’t already done so.

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 Bingo
Our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night with a jackpot of €450.

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.
