Club Notes - 5th February

There were a number of club players donning the county jersey in both codes over the weekend. On Sunday afternoon Brian Looby and James Beresford were in action in Aughrim where the Senior Footballers lost out to Wicklow.  At the same time in Mullingar Conor Prunty and Neil Montgomery were part of the Senior Hurling team that defeated Westmeath. The footballers are out again next Saturday when they take on Wexford in Fraher Field. We wish all involved the best of luck. 

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 10.30 and 11.30.

Jack the Joker
Our ever-popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnie’s Bar where the jackpot will be €5400 as on Sunday night Kitty Farrell was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 29 which when turned over was not the joker, but he did win €50. James Power and Marion Whelan won €25 each.

National Draw
The club are once again participating in the GAA National Club Draw. The purpose of this is to assist clubs in their drive to raise much needed funds with Croke Park covering the cost of some fantastic prizes including a new Renault Clio 4 Expression Car, Travel Voucher worth €2,000, All Ireland Hurling & Football packages, shopping vouchers and a host of other great prizes. The tickets are €10 each and can be purchased from any committee member.
The beauty of the draw for us is that Abbeyside Ballinacourty retains the proceeds from all tickets sold by the Club.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €1100.

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.
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland.
