Club Notes - 21st July

County Leagues
The county leagues continued last week with the final round of the football. The Seniors recorded a 1-point victory over Gaultier on Friday last (0-13 to 1-09), whilst the Intermediate team were beaten by Rathgormack (0-11 to 3-08).
The final games in the hurling league section will take place on Tuesday 20th July (Division 1 away to Tallow) and Wednesday 21st July (Division 5 away to Ballydurn).
Both the Waterford U-20 teams were out of luck last week as the hurlers were beaten by Tipperary on Monday and the footballers beaten by Tipperary also. Hard luck to all involved.
There was better news from Nowlan Park on Saturday where the Senior hurlers overcame Laois in sweltering conditions in their All-Ireland Qualifier. Next up is Galway in Thurles at 14.00 on Saturday. Hopefully, we see another good performance to see us progress and we wish the team and mentors the very best of luck and in particular 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.
