Club Notes - 19th August

Championship 2020
In what can only be described as a disappointing weekend our three adult hurling teams departed their respective championships. We’d like to thank the players and mentors for the massive effort put in over the season. We’ll regroup over the winter and be back next year with renewed enthusiasm. However, we can’t afford to dwell on if’s and buts and maybes, focus switches immediately to football and with Senior, Intermediate and Junior teams fielding it will be all systems go for the next few weeks.

Minor Hurling
The minor hurlers pit in an excellent performance last Thursday in Carrickbeg to defeat De La Salle 0-19 – 01-09. We know face Ballygunner in the County Final in Fraher Field on Wednesday 19th August at 6.30. We wish all involved the very best of luck. Just a reminder that this game is all ticket.
There is no let up for the lads then as on Monday the 24th we begin our football campaign with a game versus St Pats / Naomh Brid.

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
The ever-popular Jack The Joker relaunch took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Stags & Gerry were drawn and pick number 34. This however wasn’t the Joker but the lads did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €2,900. Gail Sandford and Tiernan Murray also won €25.

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.
