Club Notes - 26th August

Minor Hurling
A surreal atmosphere enveloped the Fraher Field last Wednesday evening when our minor hurlers faced off against Ballygunner in the County Final. Due to the updated government direction on Tuesday this game was played behind closed doors. Conditions weren’t wholly conducive to hurling but it is a credit to both teams that they served up a high-quality game full of skill and drama. Ultimately, we were to be disappointed but the lads can be more than proud of their display and their performances throughout the year.
Hard luck to all involved but focus switched immediately to football with a hectic schedule of 3 games in the next week.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw is kicking off on this Wednesday, August 26th. 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 or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Jack McCarron was drawn and picked number 34. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,000. Emma Toal and Michael O Mahony 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.
