Club Notes - 8th May

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnies Bar where the jackpot is €7800 as on Monday night Seamus Ryan was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 48 which when turned was not the joker but he did win €50. Brendan Mansfield and Michael Power won €25 each.

Senior Football
Our Senior footballers continued play An Rinn this Thursday night in the County League in Ring  at 7:30pm.

Junior Hurling
Last Sunday our Junior C hurlers played Brickey Rangers in Abbeyside in the Western Championship where the teams played out a draw.

Civic Reception
On Friday evening last our club was honoured by Waterford County Council when they held a Civic Reception for the club. It was in recognition of us winning the inaugural Under 21 Hurling Championship in 1966 and the final one last year. The Mansfield family were also honoured on the night as the Tony Mansfield Cup was of course presented to the winners of the Under 21 Hurling Championship.  We would like to thank all those in Waterford County Council for organising the special function.

Munster Championship
This weekend both the Waterford Senior Hurlers and footballers open their Munster Championship campaign with matches against Clare.  The footballers travel to Ennis on Saturday where Bian Looby is team captain and Sean Whelan Barrett is also on the team whilst Aaron Beresford is out injured.  On Sunday the hurlers welcome Clare to Walsh Park and Conor Prunty is on the panel. We wish both teams the very best of luck. 

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €1450.

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.
