Jimmy O'Leary RIP

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 night. Jimmy's involvement with our club goes back decades and indeed continued right up to this week when he was out in Ballinroad with our seniors as they continued preparations for another championship season. He took not 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.
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.
