Club Notes - 4th November

There were contrasting fortunes for both Waterford Senior teams in championship action last Saturday.
First up at 3.30 the hurlers took the field, led by our own Conor Prunty to take on Cork. This is the 1st time an Abbeyside player has been captain of the senior hurlers in a championship encounter and is tremendous honour for Conor himself and a huge source of pride to his family and the club.
It was great to see the team play with a bit of flair and no little drive and determination to come out on top and book a return to the Munster Final. Both our lads acquitted themselves admirably with Conor putting in an assured and rock steady shift at full back and Neil Montgomery winning some valuable possessions when introduced. Well done to all involved and we look forward now to a clash with Limerick on the 15th of November.
Unfortunately, there was to be no such good news story from Fraher Field that evening as Limerick ran out winners. Hard luck to all involved, especially club players Aaron Beresford, Brain Looby and James Beresford.  
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw took place last week and unfortunately there were no club winners. The next installment takes place this week. 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. Eoin Kiely was drawn and picked number 42. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Carmel Power and Teresa Mc Govern also won €25. The jackpot next week will be €4,000.
Memory Lane
As the playing season winds down we thought it would be an idea to reprise our look down memory lane. This week we feature the the Abbeyside Minor Football team who won the Western title beating Ballinameela before going down to Tramore in the County Final.

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.
