Club Notes - 15th July

Return To Play
The field has been a hive of activity since we were allowed to come back following the Covid break. Every evening there are numerous teams training from adult all the way down to juvenile hurling camogie and football. During this time we also saw a number of challenge games take place as teams limber up for upcoming championship action.
The grounds are in immaculate condition and it is a testament to a great club spirit that so many gave of their time during the lockdown to tend to the pitches and an assortment of other improvements.
We’d also like to say a big thank you to Dan Casey who facilitated us with a training area in the weeks Croke Park sanctioned get togethers were allowed but the pitch remained closed. This was a very generous gesture appreciated by all.

Championship 2020
The first adult team returning to action are our Junior B hurlers who take on Dungarvan this coming in Sunday in the Dungarvan club grounds at 2.00pm. Hopefully the lads can pick up where they left off when winning the Junior C county title last year. The very best of luck to all involved. The 2nd group game versus Ballyduff will take place in the club grounds on Friday 07th August.
We have also got notification of our Senior Hurling fixtures and first game out is versus Ballysaggart on Saturday 01st August in Fraher field followed by a trip to Walsh Park the following Sunday 09th August to take on De La Salle.
Out Junior A hurling team will see action on Monday 03rd August against The Brickies, with the remaining game against Kilrossanty on Sunday 09th August.
The minor hurling championship commences on the August Bank holiday weekend.
Given the new format of each championship the games will be coming thick and fast. Following months of inactivity, it will be fantastic, and a challenge all involved are looking forward to.
Deise Draw 2020
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 member and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member.

Jack The Joker
The ever popular Jack The Joker will return on the 2nd of August. We will be picking up where we left off on with a Jackpot of €3,000.

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.
