Club Notes - 7th February

Jack The Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €7600 as on Sunday night Mike Briggs was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 50 which when turned was not the joker but he did win €50. John Ahearne and Louise Power 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 Bar.

Under 21 Football
On Saturday afternoon last our under 21 footballers recorded a very good over The Nire in the 2017 County Semi Final which was played in The Gold Coast. This Saturday they will take on Gaultier in the County Final which once again takes place in the Gold Coast at 2pm. We appeal to all our supporters to please come out and support the team.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Ardmore on their marvellous victory in the Junior All Ireland Hurling Club Final in Croke Park on Sunday last.

Last Man Standing
Our last man standing fundraiser got off to very exciting start on Saturday last where some surprising results over the weekend saw us lose 347 entrants out of the 714 who entered. We would like to thank all those who entered and a big thanks to Willow and Oak for their generous sponsorship.

Booking of Pitches
As our teams begin returning to training we would like to remind all our coaches to please ensure that they book the pitches with Michael O’Donovan before training.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night with a jackpot of €1600.

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.
