Club Notes - 11th August

Unfortunately, the Waterford Senior Hurlers came up short in their All-Ireland semifinal against Limerick last Saturday. On behalf of everyone in the club we like to offer our commiserations to all involved, including our own lads Conor, Neil and Michael, and especially our thanks for the superb entertainment offered up over the past few weeks and months. Ye were a credit to yourselves and brought a great deal of joy to thousands.
On Monday the minor hurlers played Cork in the Munster Final with Billy O Connell, Charlie Treen, Seanie O Callaghan, Aidan Higgins, Darragh Walsh and Jack McGrath all involved. Hopefully we’ll be able to report some positive news next week.
Championship 2021
With the intercounty season now complete it’s time to gear up for the club championship. And what a game we have to kick things off with the 2020 Senior Football Final against Rathgormack fixed for Walsh Park at 17.00 on Saturday 21st August.
The games will be coming thick and fast from there on with the hurling championship for our 3 adult teams beginning in the next few weeks also.

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.
