Club Notes - 22nd January

On behalf of all in the club, we would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Jimmy O'Leary, Murphy Place who died suddenly last Thursday night. Jimmy's involvement with our club goes back decades and indeed continued right up to this week when he was out in Ballinroad where our adult players were continuing preparations for another championship season. He took no greater delight than in seeing all club teams in either the blue and gold or green and white achieve success on the playing fields of Waterford and beyond. He gave so much to Abbeyside / Ballinacourty but also always acknowledged what the club gave to him. The first to arrive at training and the last to leave, Jimmy's contribution to our club was nothing short of immense. From filling water bottles to organising jerseys, from turning on lights to locking gates, training and match days will never be the same again. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

Also we remember the late Vinny O Mahony who passed away last week. Our thoughts are with his family and many friends.

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. Kevin will be in the field on Saturday morning between 11.00 and 12.00.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €1000.

As the new season begins to click into gear if any team managers or indeed anybody within the club membership as a whole have anything they would like included here any week please feel free to drop us a line at This is the primary outlet we have for keeping people up to date with what is going on so we’d encourage you to avail of this facility.

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.
