Club Notes - 18th November

The committee had their 1st online meeting last week where a number of items were discussed. Primary amongst these was in relation to the holding of our Annual General Meeting for this year. Given the obvious constraints on gatherings it was decided unanimously to postpone until the new year. Hopefully restrictions will have eased by then so affording all members the opportunity to attend.
On Sunday last the Waterford senior hurlers put in a fine display in the Munster Final against Limerick. Unfortunately, we came out on the wrong side in a close fought game and all involved can be proud of their efforts. There is no time however for the players to rest on their laurels as next Saturday at 3.45 Clare await in the All Ireland quarter final. We wish Liam Cahill and his charges all the very best and in particular of course Conor Prunty, who will once again captain the team and Neil Montgomery.
Deise Draw 2020
The next draw will take place on 02nd December. 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 on Monday night last. Hugh O Neil was drawn and picked number 1. When turned this was not the The Joker, but he did win €50. Mike Briggs and Laura, Kieran & Darragh won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,100.

Memory Lane
This week's photo shows jubilant Abbeyside players, mentors and supporters following a seven point victory over Ballygunner in the replay of the 2004 U21 'A' County Hurling Final. The original fixture ended all-square at 1-14 a piece in one of the best hurling games in Waterford that year. The win secured only the club's second title at this grade and the first since 1966.

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.
