Juvenile Notes - 3rd October

World Record
Sunday Sept 30th saw 33 boys & girls from the Abbeyside GAA Club enter the Guinness World Record Books when they participated in the Largest Hurling Lesson which took place in Croke Park. The previous record stood at 577. Tickets scanned we entered the pitch with 40 plus clubs from around the country. The hooter sounded for the start of the record attempt, 20 drills and 30 minutes later the hooter ended the session. Back up to our seats in the Cusack Stand where we waited for the news, the record was smashed when the Guinness World Record adjudicator on the night announced that 1,772 kids trained all at the one time and for the 30 minutes required. Valid attempt and great excitement greeted the announcement, well worth the trip and a great day was had by all. Well done to all who helped make this a great memory for the boys & girls.

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.
