Club Notes - 15th August

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €4400 as on Sunday night Michael Mernin was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 4 which when turned wasn’t the joker but he did win €50. Nell Flynn and Kay O'Connor won €25 each.

Junior Hurling
Last weekend saw both of our Junior Hurling teams in Championship action as they both played in a doubleheader in Fraher Field on Saturday. Firstly our Junior C team took on An Rinn in the quarter final of the Western Championship. Unfortunately on the night it was An Rinn who took the honours meaning we now exit the championship.  We would like to thank the players and the management team for all their commitment throughout the year.
This was followed by our Junior A team's game against Kilrossanty where we ran out winners. It was great to see Evan Collins back in the club jersey after a lengthy spell out injured. This Saturday night we play St Mary’s at 8pm in Fraher Field.

Senior Hurling
We will take on Tallow in the quarter finals of the County championship on Saturday week at 7pm in Fraher Field.

Club on the Move
Participants enjoyed week 4 of our Healthy club initiative in association with Waterford Sports Partnership. With 2 weeks remaining, we are encouraging current and prospective participants to provide feedback, and ideas for future initiatives. Let's keep building! Contact Éamonn Cashin, Health and Wellbeing Healthy club officer at 0864000152 & Well done everybody!

Booking of Pitches
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 €650.

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.
