Because of our on-field successes a large number of our players represented Waterford on Inter-County panels. Mark Ferncombe and Michael Kiely won the WLR / Granville Hotel monthly GAA awards for September and December respectively. Daithí Brunnock won the U18 Footballer of the Year. Conor Prunty has been nominated for the Adult Hurler of the Year, Stephen Enright has been nominated for the Adult Footballer of the Year while Michael Kiely is in the running for the Underage Hurler of the Year. Moll Shields was awarded a Special Achievement Cultural Award for her services to Scór over many years. Finally, as a result of all of the above, we have been nominated for Club of the Year 2018. Here’s hoping that in 2019 we can build on the progress made this year.

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.
