Club Notes - 6th October

Championship 2021
The football championships kicked off last weekend with the Minor footballers getting their Division 1 campaign underway with a great win versus St Mary’s. They continue this weekend as they take on St Pats / Naomh Brid, whilst the Division 4 team get their season up and running versus Kilrossanty.
Meanwhile the Junior A team have their first outing against The Geraldines this coming Sunday.

The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Darrell Ryan was drawn and picked number 12. When turned this was not the Joker, but he did win €50. Shane Briggs and Michael Mansfield won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €2,200.

Deise Super Draw

Johnny Hickey receiving his €10,000 prize from seller Páidi Shields and Chairman Neil Moore.

The next draw will take place on Wednesday, 13th October. Tickets, priced at €15, can be purchased from any committee member.
We were saddened to learn during the week of the passing of Phil Duggan and on behalf of all the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family. Phil was a very well know figure around the village and donned the club colours with distinction down through the years, winning a Western Minor hurling title in 1955, and indeed had the distinction of being called up to the Waterford minor panel that same year. In 1960 he took up the position of secretary and filled this role for a number of years.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
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.
