Club Notes - 9th September

The 2020 football championships kicked off last weekend with all 3 of our adult teams in action. First into the fray were the Senior team who put in a solid hour and saw off a determined Ardmore challenge on a score line of 3-17 to 1-07. Bigger tests lie ahead and on Sunday next Clashmore provide the opposition in what should be a proper championship tussle. On Sunday the Intermediate and Junior A teams were in action and despite putting in commendable performances both had to give best to Modeligo and Kilgobnet respectively. As is the nature of this year’s championship structure there is no time for retrospection, and both are straight back into the fray. The Juniors play Tallow on Thursday whilst the Intermediates have a do or die tussle against our old friends from across the bridge on Saturday. We wish all involved the very best of luck.   

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. Pakie Lynch was drawn and picked number 20. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,200. Michael McGrath and Roisin Briggs also won €25.

Best of Luck
Last Saturday the Junior camogie team had a tremendous victory in over Portlaw in the Co Semi Final. On behalf of everyone in the club we’d like to wish the girls all the best in the Co Final against The Brickies next Saturday.

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.
