Club Notes - 3rd October

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €5800 as on Sunday night Maurice Cliffe was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 6 which when turned wasn’t the joker but he did win €50. Hiker and Betty Hayes won €25 each.

Night at the Dogs
On Saturday October 27th we are holding a fundraising Night at the Dogs in Kilcohan Park. This promises to be a fantastic night and we appeal to all our supporters to please come along and make the night a huge success. Tickets cost €10 and are currently on sale from all players and committee members.  We are also running buses on the night so please let any committee member know if you wish to travel by bus on the night.

Healthy Club – Couch to 5k
Following on from the success of "Club on the Move", our Healthy Club Programme launched the "Couch to 5k" initiative in association with Waterford Sports Partnership and West Waterford A.C. on Wednesday 12th, at the grounds.
It will continue each Wednesday at 6.30pm, culminating in participants taking part in the Brickey's 5km on Sunday November 4th at 11am. It's not too late to join. €20 for 8 weeks training in a fun and healthy environment. Come along!

Senior Hurling
All roads lead to Fraher Field this Sunday as our Senior hurlers take on Ballygunner in the County Final. We appeal to all our wonderfully loyal supporters to come along and show your support for the lads as they attempt to bring the senior hurling championship back to the Village for the first time.

County Final Meal
After the Senior Hurling County Final the team will be having their meal in The Park Hotel.  If anyone would like to join them they are most welcome but must book in advance.  Please contact Pakie Hurney, Mike Briggs or Neil Moore by Friday evening if you wish to do so.

World Record
On Sunday last a large group of boys and girls from our under 12 and 13 teams made the long trip to Croke Park to take part in the GAA's World Record attempt at having the largest hurling training session. Clubs from across Ireland were represented as 1772 children and their mentors smashed the target to create an official new Guinness World Record. All of the boys and girls who travelled had an absolutely brilliant day out and will remember their big day in Croker for many years. Sincere thanks to all the club mentors who helped organise the trip.

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.
