Club Notes - 14th July


County Leagues
Our good start to the county leagues continued last week with both our hurling teams recording good victories. On Friday, the Seniors travelled to Roanmore and came away with a 2-16 to 1-12 victory whilst on Sunday morning in our own field the Junior’s overcame Colligan by 6 points, 1-18 to 0-15. The final games in the league section will take place on Tuesday 20th July (Senior away to Tallow) and Wednesday 21st July (Junior away to Ballydurn).
This week it’s back to football as the Seniors have a home fixture with Gaultier on Thursday 15th at 19.30 and the Intermediates entertain Rathgormack on Sunday at 12.00.  
The Waterford U-20 footballers scored a superb victory over Clare last Thursday and we’d like to extend our heartiest congratulations to all involved, especially to our own lads Colin Foley and DJ Kiely. Next up is a trip to Thurles on Thursday to take on Tipperary in the Muster Semi Final. Best of luck to all involved.
Also, in action this week were the U-20 hurlers who played Tipperary on Monday evening. Obviously at time of writing we don’t know the result, but hopefully we can report on a positive result next week. Michael Kiely is on the panel and Shane Briggs a member of the management team.
Following defeat to Clare the Senior hurlers begin their journey through the Qualifiers with a game in Nowlan Park this Saturday at 14.00. Hopefully, we can get out season back on track and we wish the best of luck to all involved and in particular to our own lads, Conor, Neil and Michael.
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.
Kevin will be in the club grounds this coming Saturday between 10.00 and 11.30 to collect membership.

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.
