Club Notes - 23rd January

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €4800 as on Sunday night Jack O'Hare was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 12 which when turned was not the joker but he did win €50. Stags and Gerry and Olivere Maher won €25 each.

County Board Awards Night
On Friday night last the Annual County Board Awards Night took place in Lawlors Hotel where the club were well represented.  Moll Shields was be honoured for her service to Scór for many years and Daithi Breathnach was be presented with his award as Under 18 footballer of the Year. Also on the night Michael Kiely was named as the Waterford Underage Hurler of the Year. This was a fantastic honour for Michael and his family and indeed all our club.

With the playing season commencing very shortly we ask all players to get their membership paid quickly. Also non playing members can pay their membership in the coming weeks. Membership can be paid to Kevin Tobin.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €700.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Michael Wright who was tragically killed over the weekend.  Michael was a hugely popular figure not alone in Dungarvan but throughout all of West Waterford.  Michael's nephews played for our Club and indeed continue to do so.  Once again we send our sympathies to Michael's family and his large circle of friends.

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.
