Club Notes - 10th March


Jack The Joker

The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Henry Shields was drawn and picked number 12. When turned this was not the Joker, but he did win €50. Roisin Briggs and Ger Darcy won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €2,700.


Memory Lane

Over the past few week’s bingo mania has been sweeping the parish with our now regular online Saturday night games proving extremely popular with both young and old alike. Indeed, what is most notable is the number of newcomers who are taking part, players who a few weeks ago didn’t know their top of the house from the key to the door are now experts.

This is our 1st foray into the online sphere but going back over 50 years the club have had a very strong bingo tradition. Pictured are details of the first game we promoted back in June 1970, with Mrs. Flynn Murphy’s Place picking up the full house prize of £15.

Subsequent to this of course we progressed onto our customary Sunday night slot in various halls around town throughout the 80’s to the present day where, up until Covid intervened, the CBS were our hosts. Whilst the online games have been a great success and are proving a great source of enjoyment for so many people, we of course look forward to the day when we can welcome everyone back in person, In the meantime, it’s eyes down every Saturday at 8pm.


St Patrick’s Bingo Bonanza

On Saturday night next, Abbeyside Ballinacourty GAA All-Star Online Bingo will host a St. Patricks Bingo Bonanza. This is the perfect opportunity for all members of our local community at home and abroad to join us for the night to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day together and be in with a chance of winning some of our €3,000 prize fund


Our 9 game Bingo will consist of 4 €180 games, 2 €260 games, 1 €400 game with an extra €250 in 48 calls and 2 €680 games! There will also be spot prizes sponsored by local businesses at various stages of the night. This promises to an extra special Bingo night and we hope that everybody will be able to join us.

Due to the amount of books already ordered for Saturday night, people are encouraged to order their books as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

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.
