Club Notes - 16th September

Championship 2020
The highlight of the week was the performance of our Senior footballers who put in a fine performance last Sunday afternoon in defeating Clashmore. As is the nature of this year’s championship there is no time to rest on our laurels as we move forward to the Quarter final next weekend. Here Ring will provide the opposition with throw in Fraher Field Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm. Best of luck to Lar and his team.
Unfortunately, the news was not so good for the Intermediate and Junior teams who both exited their respective championships. Thanks to all involved for their efforts in what were difficult circumstances.

Deise Draw 2020
The 2nd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this 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. Niamh & Anthony were drawn and picked number 7. This however wasn’t the Joker but they did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,300. Pakie Hurney and Liam Briggs also won €25.

Hard Luck
The Junior camogie were out of luck in their County Final versus The Brickies last Saturday. Whilst obviously disappointed all involved can take tremendous heart from their efforts this year.
On behalf of all in the club we’d like to pass on our congratulations to Sean O Hare and Deirdre Coleman on their marriage last weekend. Sean has worn the jersey with distinction for many years and of course was captain of the senior team that won the championship in 2011. We wish them both many years of happiness.

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.
