Club Notes - 16th December


All Ireland Final
Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be our day last Sunday in Croke Park. The team gave it their all but came up against a stronger Limerick team on the day. That being said each and every one of those involved can take massive pride in their achievements this year. It was a bright light in an otherwise dark year and certainly for those of us in Waterford the joy of seeing our team competing at the top table again certainly shortened the winter. We are immensely proud of every player, the management and the support team. Of course here in Abbeyside Ballinacourty we are especially proud of our own lads Conor and Neil. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the joy and entertainment you gave us these past 3 months. We go again next year and hopefully we can reach the summit.
 
Minor Intercounty
We also had a number of players involved in provincial semi final last weekend. Regretfully the results didn’t go our way but once again the lads put in good performances. On the hurling we had Conor Kent, Charlie Treen, Willie Beresford, Sean O Callaghan and Sean Lanigan involved whilst David Byrne was with the Footballers. Hard luck lads, there will be better days ahead.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The next draw will take place on this coming Friday the 18th December.
 
National Draw
Tickets are now available from any committee member. Please if you can purchase a ticket as 100% of the funds earned will go to the club.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. John Hickey was drawn and picked number 14. When turned this was not the The Joker, but he did win €50. Geraldine Briggs and Tony Elstead won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,500.

Club Notes - 9th December

 
All Ireland Final
On Sunday next Waterford will contest the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final for only the 9th time in our history. Although we can’t there it is and occasion for us all to savour. Especially given the fact there are 2 club players who have played integral roles in the success of the team to date. It will be something special to see an Abbeyside man leading the team out and we’d like to wish Conor, Neil and all involved the very best of luck. You’ll have thousands with you in spirit even if we can’t be there in person.  
 
Deise Draw 2020
The latest draw took place on Wednesday last and there was 1 club winner, Niamh & Mark McGrath who won €250. The next draw will take place on 18th December. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. John Hickey was drawn and picked number 14. When turned this was not the Joker, but he did win €50. Geraldine Briggs and Tony Elstead won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,500.

Club Notes - 25th November

 
Intercounty
On Saturday last the Waterford senior hurlers had an excellent victory over Clare in the All Ireland Quarter Final. This was a very enjoyable game and it’s fantastic to see the team play with a bit of flair and confidence again. Once again, the 2 Village lads acquitted themselves more than admirably with Conor confidently anchoring the defence and Neil putting in a very energetic shift when introduced, including a super point. Next up is Kilkenny in the semi final next Saturday in Croke Park at 6.00pm. Best of luck to all involved.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The next draw will take place on 02nd December. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Alan & Jane Olive were drawn and picked number 27. When turned this was not the The Joker, but they did win €50. Alan Daly and David Hickey won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,200.

Club Notes - 18th November

 AGM
The committee had their 1st online meeting last week where a number of items were discussed. Primary amongst these was in relation to the holding of our Annual General Meeting for this year. Given the obvious constraints on gatherings it was decided unanimously to postpone until the new year. Hopefully restrictions will have eased by then so affording all members the opportunity to attend.
 
Intercounty
On Sunday last the Waterford senior hurlers put in a fine display in the Munster Final against Limerick. Unfortunately, we came out on the wrong side in a close fought game and all involved can be proud of their efforts. There is no time however for the players to rest on their laurels as next Saturday at 3.45 Clare await in the All Ireland quarter final. We wish Liam Cahill and his charges all the very best and in particular of course Conor Prunty, who will once again captain the team and Neil Montgomery.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The next draw will take place on 02nd December. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Hugh O Neil was drawn and picked number 1. When turned this was not the The Joker, but he did win €50. Mike Briggs and Laura, Kieran & Darragh won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,100.
 

Memory Lane
This week's photo shows jubilant Abbeyside players, mentors and supporters following a seven point victory over Ballygunner in the replay of the 2004 U21 'A' County Hurling Final. The original fixture ended all-square at 1-14 a piece in one of the best hurling games in Waterford that year. The win secured only the club's second title at this grade and the first since 1966.

Club Notes - 11th November

 
Intercounty
On Sunday next Waterford play Limerick in the 2020 Senior Hurling Munster Final. We wish Liam Cahill and his charges all the very best and in particular of course Conor Prunty, who will once again captain the team and Neil Montgomery. It’ll be strange watching on from afar but hopefully the team can do the business and bring a little cheer to us all.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The latest draw took place last week and there were 2 club winners, with Kevin Ford and Kate Cullinane both winning €250. The next draw will take place on 02nd December. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Brian Looby was drawn and picked number 9. When turned this proved to be The Joker so Brian won the jackpot of €4,000. Sean Gormley and John Elsted won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,000.
 
Memory Lane
This week's photo shows the Ballinacourty team that beat the Nire, 0-6 to 0-5, to win the Western Junior Football League in 1997 in Touraneena.  This year also saw the club win the Western Junior Hurling League, thus completing a rare league double.

Club Notes - 4th November

 
Intercounty
There were contrasting fortunes for both Waterford Senior teams in championship action last Saturday.
First up at 3.30 the hurlers took the field, led by our own Conor Prunty to take on Cork. This is the 1st time an Abbeyside player has been captain of the senior hurlers in a championship encounter and is tremendous honour for Conor himself and a huge source of pride to his family and the club.
It was great to see the team play with a bit of flair and no little drive and determination to come out on top and book a return to the Munster Final. Both our lads acquitted themselves admirably with Conor putting in an assured and rock steady shift at full back and Neil Montgomery winning some valuable possessions when introduced. Well done to all involved and we look forward now to a clash with Limerick on the 15th of November.
 
Unfortunately, there was to be no such good news story from Fraher Field that evening as Limerick ran out winners. Hard luck to all involved, especially club players Aaron Beresford, Brain Looby and James Beresford.  
 
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw took place last week and unfortunately there were no club winners. The next installment takes place this week. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Eoin Kiely was drawn and picked number 42. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Carmel Power and Teresa Mc Govern also won €25. The jackpot next week will be €4,000.
 
Memory Lane
As the playing season winds down we thought it would be an idea to reprise our look down memory lane. This week we feature the the Abbeyside Minor Football team who won the Western title beating Ballinameela before going down to Tramore in the County Final.

Club Notes - 28th October

 
Covid Update
With the country returning to Level 5 restrictions club activity has been suspended for the duration. Given the timescales involved it is unlikely we will see a return to action in this calendar year. As such we’d like to take this opportunity to thanks all players, mentors, supporters and officials for all their efforts during the season. Like every year there were highs and lows and we must take the positives, in what was a very trying period and move onto 2021 with confidence. Hopefully we will be out the other side at that stage, and we can all get back to doing what we love, playing, coaching and supporting our great games. Until then please keep safe.
 
Championship 2020
The county board took the decision during the week to suspend all further club activity until the new year. Consequently, our Senior Football final is now provisionally fixed for the weekend of 20th / 21st of February.
Unfortunately, the U-20 hurling championship has been cancelled.
 
Intercounty
Both Waterford Senior teams are in championship action this coming Saturday and the club is well represented in both codes. First up are the hurlers who take on Cork at 3.30 in Thurles for a place in the Munster final. Conor Prunty and Neil Montgomery are members of the panel. Then at 7.00 the footballers take to the Fraher Field in a quarter final clash with Limerick. Here we have Aaron Beresford, Brian Looby and James Beresford involved. Under normal circumstances there would of course be a large club contingent in attendance at both games. This time we will have to make do with the television, but our support will be no less passionate. We wish the lads, and all involved the very best if luck.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw took place last week and unfortunately there were no club winners. The next installment is in 2 weeks time. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Martina Cosgrave was drawn and picked number 24. This however wasn’t the Joker but she did win €50. David Hickey and Jimmy Lenihan also won €25.
 
Sympathy
On behalf of everyone in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Mulvihill family on the death of Maureen Mulvihill, McCarthy Ville. Her sons of course wore the club jersey with distinction for many years and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

Club Notes - 21st October

Covid Update
On Monday the government announced that the country was returning to Level 5 restrictions. At the time of writing we are unsure what this means for us as a club. Once we fully briefed on the implications we will make publish a statement to the membership.
Please keep an eye on our Social Media accounts.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw took place last week. Unfortunately we had no winner. The next draw will take place in ealry November. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Ger Walsh was drawn and picked number 2. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,800. Marion & Anthony and Paddy & Damien also won €25.

Club Notes - 14th October

 
Covid Update
Following on from the communication from Croke Park last week suspending matches, the club took the decision on Thursday last to temporarily suspend all playing related activity. This was due to a large uptick in cases locally and as a club we felt continued collective training posed too high a risk to the wider community. These measures will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and once the situation stabilises we hope to have our players back in the field.
We understand the frustration that this will inevitably cause amongst the membership, but in these unprecedented times there can be no compromise when it comes to the safety of our players and by extension our family and friends. This cloud will pass but until then we’d ask you all to remain vigilant and continue to adhere to the published guidelines. We need to pull together as a club, a parish and a community to get through this.
 
We will of course provide updates as they become available.
 
Senior Football
The County Board issued a directive this week that the senior final versus Rathgormack will take place only after the Waterford senior intercounty teams have finished their respective seasons. There will be at a minimum a 2 week period allowed for preparation and so at the very least we are looking at a December date.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw will take place in this week. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Laurance Power was drawn and picked number 17. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,700. James Cullinane and Shane Hallahan also won €25.
This week’s draw, and all draws until further notice will take place in the clubhouse.

Club Notes - 7th October

Covid Update

We received word from Croke Park Monday lunchtime that all GAA games suspended with immediate effect. Whilst obviously disappointed given the upcoming County Final we will of course adhere stringently to the new guideline as the safety of players and members is our number 1 priority.  We will of course provide updates as they become available.

 

Senior Football

The Senior footballers put in a fine display against The Nire last Saturday to book a place in the County Final. On what was a perfect evening for football both teams produced an exciting game with the result in doubt right up to the end. After a slow start we began to grow into the game as the 1st half progressed and then flew out of the block in the 2nd half and established a game winning lead before the water break.

We now face off against Rathgormack in a repeat of last year’s final. This was of course originally fixed for Walsh Park next Saturday, but as outlined above the game cannot now go ahead. As of now we don’t know when the game will take place but as stated above we’ll provide updates as and when they become available.


Deise Draw 2020

The 3rd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

 

Jack The Joker

The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Neil Moore was drawn and picked number 11. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,600. Evan Collins and Michael O Halloran also won €25.

Club Notes - 30th September

Covid Update

On Thursday last a member of our senior football team informed the club that he was awaiting a Covid test as he was classified as a close contact of a person who had tested positive. The club committee convened that evening and made the decision to suspend all club activity for a 48-hour period. As a club we have a duty of care to protect the wellbeing of all our players and members and this decision was taken wholly on that basis. Thankfully the test returned negative and activity has returned to normal. We’re of course delighted that this was the outcome, but it does serve as a potent reminder of the ongoing risks and we’d appeal to everyone to remain vigilant.

 

Senior Football

Given the circumstances outlined above the County Semi Final versus The Nire scheduled for last Saturday was postponed. The game has been re-fixed for next Saturday in Fraher Field with a throw in time of 7.00pm. This will undoubtedly be a very stern test and we wish Lar and all the team the very best of luck.

As per current Government guidelines the club will be restricted to 100 supporters on the night. The game will however be streamed live. Please see the Waterford County Board website for details.

 

Deise Draw 2020

The 3rd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

 

Jack The Joker

The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Joe Cleary was drawn and picked number 25. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,500. John Clancy and Paddy King also won €25.

As per current Government guidelines the club will be restricted to 100 supporters on the night. Any member who wishes to apply for a ticket please have your name with Neil Moore or Jonathan O'Donovan by 1.00pm on Thursday.

Championship 2020
The highlight of the week was the performance of our Senior footballers who put in a fine performance last Sunday afternoon in defeating Clashmore. As is the nature of this year’s championship there is no time to rest on our laurels as we move forward to the Quarter final next weekend. Here Ring will provide the opposition with throw in Fraher Field Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm. Best of luck to Lar and his team.
Unfortunately, the news was not so good for the Intermediate and Junior teams who both exited their respective championships. Thanks to all involved for their efforts in what were difficult circumstances.

Deise Draw 2020
The 2nd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Hard Luck
The Junior camogie were out of luck in their County Final versus The Brickies last Saturday. Whilst obviously disappointed all involved can take tremendous heart from their efforts this year.
Congratulations
On behalf of all in the club we’d like to pass on our congratulations to Sean O Hare and Deirdre Coleman on their marriage last weekend. Sean has worn the jersey with distinction for many years and of course was captain of the senior team that won the championship in 2011. We wish them both many years of happiness.

Championship
The 2020 football championships kicked off last weekend with all 3 of our adult teams in action. First into the fray were the Senior team who put in a solid hour and saw off a determined Ardmore challenge on a score line of 3-17 to 1-07. Bigger tests lie ahead and on Sunday next Clashmore provide the opposition in what should be a proper championship tussle. On Sunday the Intermediate and Junior A teams were in action and despite putting in commendable performances both had to give best to Modeligo and Kilgobnet respectively. As is the nature of this year’s championship structure there is no time for retrospection, and both are straight back into the fray. The Juniors play Tallow on Thursday whilst the Intermediates have a do or die tussle against our old friends from across the bridge on Saturday. We wish all involved the very best of luck.   

Deise Draw 2020
The 2nd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

First into action are the Senior footballers who begin their campaign with a game against Ardmore in Fraher Field next Saturday at 7.00 pm. On Sunday the Intermediate team are inaction versus Modeligo in Fraher Field at 2.00pm with our Junior A’s playing Kilgobnet in the same venue at 6.00pm. We wish all involved the very best of luck.

Deise Draw 2020
The first draw took place last Thursday, August 26th. Unfortunately, there was no winner from the club on this occasion. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Katie Briggs was drawn and picked number 27. This however wasn’t the Joker but she did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,100. David Hickey and Fiona Flynn also won €25.

Waterford Strategic Review Survey
Over the past week or so the club has been involved in collecting data for the above survey. This will be extremely helpful once all the information is collated and will be sure to throw up some interesting talking points. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took the time to complete the survey.

Club Notes - 26th August


Minor Hurling
A surreal atmosphere enveloped the Fraher Field last Wednesday evening when our minor hurlers faced off against Ballygunner in the County Final. Due to the updated government direction on Tuesday this game was played behind closed doors. Conditions weren’t wholly conducive to hurling but it is a credit to both teams that they served up a high-quality game full of skill and drama. Ultimately, we were to be disappointed but the lads can be more than proud of their display and their performances throughout the year.
Hard luck to all involved but focus switched immediately to football with a hectic schedule of 3 games in the next week.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw is kicking off on this Wednesday, August 26th. As it is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Jack McCarron was drawn and picked number 34. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,000. Emma Toal and Michael O Mahony also won €25

Club Notes - 19th August


Championship 2020
In what can only be described as a disappointing weekend our three adult hurling teams departed their respective championships. We’d like to thank the players and mentors for the massive effort put in over the season. We’ll regroup over the winter and be back next year with renewed enthusiasm. However, we can’t afford to dwell on if’s and buts and maybes, focus switches immediately to football and with Senior, Intermediate and Junior teams fielding it will be all systems go for the next few weeks.

Minor Hurling
The minor hurlers pit in an excellent performance last Thursday in Carrickbeg to defeat De La Salle 0-19 – 01-09. We know face Ballygunner in the County Final in Fraher Field on Wednesday 19th August at 6.30. We wish all involved the very best of luck. Just a reminder that this game is all ticket.
There is no let up for the lads then as on Monday the 24th we begin our football campaign with a game versus St Pats / Naomh Brid.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw will kick off on August 26th. Over the coming weeks we will be making a big effort in this regard as it is one of our primary fundraising streams. We’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member.

Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker relaunch took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Stags & Gerry were drawn and pick number 34. This however wasn’t the Joker but the lads did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €2,900. Gail Sandford and Tiernan Murray also won €25.
