Club Notes - 13th March

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €6200 as on Sunday night Louise Kennedy was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 53 which when turned was not the joker but she did win €50. Jane Olive and Tony Brady won €25 each.

County League
This Thursday night our Senior hurlers play Lismore in Abbeyside in the County League opening game at 8pm.

Under 19 Football
On St Patrick's morning our Under 19 Footballers play St Oliver’s in Ballinameela at 11:30am.

Under 21 Medal Presentation
On Friday night last, we held a most enjoyable medal presentation night in the Gold Coast where our victorious Under 21 teams from 2017 and 2018 were presented with their Western and County Medals. The night also provided the perfect opportunity to honour our 1966 Under 21 Hurling team who won the very first Under 21 Hurling County Title. MC Bob O’ Brien did an excellent job keeping the proceedings moving on the night.  The evening concluded with Conor Prunty presenting the Tony Mansfield Cup back to Mrs Moira Mansfield and her family as the Under 21 grade is no longer in operation.  We thank the management and staff of the Gold Coast for the fantastic night the provided us with.

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 €1050.

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.
