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.
Kevin will be in the club grounds this coming Saturday between 10.00 and 11.30 to collect membership.

It was a super weekend on the intercounty front for Waterford with both Senior teams winning. The footballers had a great win over Wexford on Saturday and the hurlers following up with victory over All Ireland champions Limerick on Sunday. Congratulations to all involved and especially our own players, Brian, Aaron, James and John in the football and Conor, Neil and Michael in the hurling.
On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the O Connell family, Ballinacourty on the death of Ollie. Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Tiernan Murray was drawn and picked number 3. When turned this was not the Joker, but he did win €50. Fiona Flynn and Richie Ryan won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €3,800.

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.
