Club Notes - 12th May

Senior Championships
The draws for the respective Senior Championships took place on Friday evening last. In hurling we were drawn with Ballygunner and Ballyduff Upper, whist the football group consists of An Rinn and Stradbally. As with last year the hurling will be played off first with the start date dependent on the success of the Waterford Senior teams.
Of course, there is also the not insignificant matter of the 2020 Senior Football Final to be played. At time of writing this is scheduled to take place 2 weeks after the end of our intercounty season.
As we return, we would like to emphasis the importance of getting your membership paid as soon as possible. If you have not already done so, please contact our membership officer Kevin Tobin on 087 9954448 to arrange payment. From a playing perspective it is compulsory that you are a member as it ensures you are included in the insurance scheme. Rates for this year are Adult €150 / Student €75, Married Couple (non-playing) €70, Single (non-playing) €50 and OAP €40. Of course, members of our 300 Club are fully covered.
The intercounty season commenced last Sunday when the Senior hurlers made the trip to Pairc Ui Chaoimh to take on Cork. Unfortunately, it wasn’t our day with Cork coming out with a 7-point victory. However, in the condensed format this year there is an opportunity to get the 1st win when Westmeath are the opponents in Walsh Park on Sunday next at 13.30. Best of luck to Conor, Neil and Michael and the rest of the team.
The footballers also enter the fray next weekend when they take on Carlow in Fraher Field on Saturday at 19.00.  Best of luck to all involved especially club players Brian Looby, James Beresford and Aaron Beresford.
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Hollie, Sadie, Katie and Joey O Sullivan were drawn and picked number 4. When turned this was not the Joker, but they did win €50. Páidi Shields and Jonathan O Donovan won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €3,600.

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.
