Club Notes - 15th September

Championship 2021
We are now at the business end of the hurling championship season and we still have 3 teams alive and kicking.
The Junior A team had a great victory over Kilrossanty in the Western Quarter final last Saturday and now face the challenge of The Brickies this coming Saturday. Having played out a draw in the group stages we are expecting another tough game. This game is in Colligan at 14.00 which means we’ll have a bit of time for a quick bite to eat before heading to Carrickbeg where the Minors are taking on De La Salle in the County A semi-final at 18.15. This is a repeat of last years semi final where we came out on top after a terrific game. Hopefully we will see a repeat this weekend.
Then of course there is the small matter of a Senior Hurling Quarter Final against Dungarvan on Sunday. As with every derby previews will be written and the match played numerous times beforehand on the street corners & local hostelries with rumours abounding on both sides of the bridge of serious injuries etc. However, at the end of the day it’ll come down to 14.00 Sunday in Fraher Field.  Knockout championship: you can’t beat it!!
Best of luck to all the teams and all going well we’ll have a lot more to look forward next week.

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.
