County U21 'A' Hurling Champions

Congratulations to our U21 players and management team on their thoroughly deserved 3-13 to 1-12 victory over De La Salle in the County 'A' Hurling Final played this afternoon at Fraher Field. Every player, to a man, put in a truly committed and skillful display to claim our fifth county title at this grade and our first since 2007. Indeed, this win has great significance for our club. We won the first title played in 1966 and have now won the last. From 2019 this competition will be played at U20 level. Of further importance to us is that the U21 trophy is named in honour of our much esteemed late chairman, Tony Mansfield. We tried might and main to win this cup over the last few years but fell at the final hurdle. Thankfully it now rests in Tony's beloved Village. It will sit nicely alongside the County U21 'A' Football trophy won earlier 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.
