Club Notes - 18th December

U19 Hurling County Final
The curtain finally comes down on the clubs playing season this Sunday when our Under 19 hurlers face off against Eastern Champions Ballygunner at 1.30pm in Carrickbeg. Best of luck to all involved and if you can, please make an effort to get down and support the lads.

Team Managers
The newly installed committee held their 1st meeting last Wednesday evening and amongst other items on a busy agenda the ratification of team managers for the upcoming season was discussed. The following appointments were agreed:-

Senior Hurling & Football -    Laurence Hurney
Intermediate Football -         Pat O Brien
Junior “A” Hurling -              Neil Moore
Junior Football -                   Ian Kiely
Junior “B” Hurling -              Johnny Shields

The policy whereby current adult players take charge of the U19 teams will continue in 2020.

Over the weekend we learnt that Conor Prunty has been named as the county senior hurling vice captain for 2020. Congratulations to Conor on this great honour. We wish him and his teammates the very best of luck for the year ahead.

County Convention
The above took place in Lawlors Hotel last Thursday and the club had a full representation of 3 delegates present. On the evening Neil Moore was elected to the position of Vice Chairman. We’d like to congratulate Neil and wish him the best of luck for the duration of his term.

Jack the Joker
Our ever-popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnie’s Bar where the jackpot will be €4000 as on Sunday night Muriel Mills was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 30 which when turned over was not the joker, but she did win €50. Shaun Hallahan and Joan Hannon won €25 each.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €850.

On behalf of everyone in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Nuala Ryan and Alice (La) Walsh. Both families have had a long association with the club and our thoughts are with all concerned at this difficult time.

Season’s Greetings
As another year draws to a close we’d like to thank all our loyal members and supporters for their ongoing support and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  

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.
