Club Notes - 13th February

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €5400 as on Sunday night Billy Kyne was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 7 which when turned was not the joker but he did win €50. Jason O’Donovan and Christy Dunford won €25 each.

Inter County Activity
Last weekend saw the Waterford Senior Football team continue their National League campaign as they took on Derry in Fraher Field. Unfortunately on the day they suffered a narrow defeat where Aaron Beresford, Sean Whelan Barrett and Brian Looby were on the team and Kevin Dwane was on the panel.

Floodlighting Improvements
Last weekend saw a hard working crew of club volunteers install the first phase of the floodlighting upgrade to our training pitch. These LED lights will prove a great addition to the club as all our teams from under 6 up to Senior will be able to avail of the facility.
We would like to thank Ian and Hiker in particular for the work they put into planning this project for a number of months.
Also we thank those who supported our Dog Night before Christmas as the money raised on the night funded the cost of the lights. With your continued support we look forward to moving ahead with further development works in our grounds.

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 €850.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Paddy Fitzgerald, Dungarvan who passed away recently.  Paddy gave a lifetime of service to the GAA and was well known throughout the County due to his involvement with Scór for many years and also through his role as caretaker in Fraher Field.  Once again we send our sympathies to Paddy’s family and all in Dungarvan GAA Club on their loss. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

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.
