Club Notes - 6th February

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €5200 as on Sunday night Dennis Cosgrave was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 11 which when turned was not the joker but he did win €50. Marie and Shirley and Paudie Whelan won €25 each.

Inter County Activity
Last weekend saw both the Waterford Senior Football and hurling teams continue their National League campaigns. On Sunday the footballers lost out narrowly to Limerick in Rathkeale where Aaron Beresford, Sean Whelan Barrett and Brian Looby were on the team and Kevin Dwane was on the panel. Also on Sunday the hurlers recorded a big win over Laois in Portlaoise where Conor Prunty was on the team.

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 €800.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to our Club Chairman Michael Briggs on the death of his stepfather Michael Chester, Lisduggan, Waterford City. The Briggs family has made an enormous contribution to our Club and we send our sympathies to Michael and all his family but especially to Michael's mother Kitty on her loss.

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.
