Club Notes - 29th July

Championship 2020 Tickets
Our senior hurlers begin their championship campaign on Saturday evening next, 1st August against Ballysaggart in Fraher Field. Due to Covid-19 restrictions on outdoor gatherings, the club has received 45 tickets for this game. Should applications exceed demand, a draw will take place for the tickets. Only fully paid up members are eligible to enter the draw and there is a maximum of one ticket per member. If any member is interested in entering the draw, please submit your name to secretary, Jonathan O'Donovan by 1:00pm on Thursday, 30th July. Tickets cost €10 and there are no concessions.

Also, the following weekend, we play De La Salle in Walsh Park. The criteria for applying for tickets is the same. Please submit your name to the secretary by 1:00pm on Thursday, 6th August.

Finally, our Junior 'A' hurlers play Brickey Rangers on Bank Holiday Monday, 3rd August at 3:30pm in Dungarvan Club Grounds. Anyone wishing to apply for a ticket for this game should contact club chairman, Neil Moore by 1:00pm on Thursday, 30th July.

Senior Hurling
As stated above our Senior hurlers finally get their championship campaign underway when we face off against Ballysaggart this Saturday in Fraher Field at 7.00pm. Preparations have gone well, and we wish Laurence and his team all the best.
Whilst tickets are limited, we would remind supporters that this game will be streamed live. Details are available in the Waterford Co Board website. Of course, nothing beats being there but this is an excellent initiative by all involved affording all who want to see the game the opportunity to do so.

Junior Hurling
The last of our adult hurling teams to see championship action will be our Junior A hurlers who take on Brickey Ranger in Dungarvan club grounds on the Bank Holiday Monday at 3.30pm. This is a championship we went well in last year and we wish Neil Moore and all the lads the very best of luck.
Again, tickets will be limited so please apply if you are interested in attending as per the instructions above.

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
Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions we have been forced to push back the relaunch of the ever-popular Jack The Joker. This will now return on the weekend ending 09th August. We will be picking up where we left off on with a Jackpot of €2,800.

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.
