Club Notes - 10th November

Championship 2021
We bowed out of the Senior football championship when going down to The Nire at the semi final stage. It’s been a long year and on behalf of everyone in the club we’d like to thank the lads for their tremendous commitment throughout. It wasn’t our night on Saturday but with the batteries recharged over the winter there is no doubt we will be back challenging for honours again next year. Also of course our thanks go out to Lar and his selectors, Gary, Mattie and Conor along with all the backroom team for all their efforts.
Thanks, you also to Johnny Mooney and the staff of Eurospar who provided refreshments after training for the past few weeks. This was greatly appreciated by players and mentors alike.
Although we’re disappointed at the relinquishing of our Senior crown there is still much to look forward to for the remainder of the year. The Minor Footballers are still involved the race for the county championship and once a fixture become available, we will post same on our social media accounts and website.
Allied to this the U-20 championships are making a welcome return this year after a Covid enforced absence in 2020. Again, once fixtures are available, we will let you know.
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last and after 16 weeks the jackpot was won. The lucky recipients were Stags & Jerry who picked 43. Congratulations to the lads and we hope they enjoy their winnings. Darrell Ryan and Kathleen Mahony won €25 each. The jackpot next week will be €1,000.
Sunday Night Bingo
We will be back in the hall again this Sunday, eyes down at 8.00pm with a €400 Jackpot in 40 calls. Books cost Single & Quickie €13, Double & Quickie €16. See you there.
All Ireland Champion
Congratulations to Charlie Treen who was crowned All Ireland U-17 Handball Champion in the Friary last Friday evening. This is a tremendous and well-deserved achievement for a fantastic athlete. Well done Charlie.

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.
