Club Notes - 24th November

Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of CLG Dún na Mainistreach / Baile na Cúirte will take place in St. Laurence’s Hall, Ballinroad on Friday 03rd December 2021 commencing at 8.00pm sharp. All members are invited to attend.
Minor Football County Champions
Well, done to our Minor Football team who played some outstanding football to lift the County Title in the Gold Coast last Saturday.
On a day more akin to August than November, there was a sizable crowd present to witness both teams put on a great spectacle. It was very much nip and tuck up to the 1st water break at which point the sides were level at 3 points apiece. However, the lads took control of proceedings in the 2nd quarter outscoring our opponents by 1-04 to 0-01 with Seanie Callaghan raising the green flag. The 2nd half followed a similar pattern as Gaultier did their best to stay in the game and again it was the final quarter when we finally took control and ran out 3-13 – 0-07 victors.
A big thanks to the players for the huge effort they put into training all year and especially to John Kiely's management team for all the work they put into training the team all year. Finally, well done to Seanie Callaghan who was named as Man of the Match.
Following the game, the players, management and supporters made the short trip to the Gold Coast Hotel for an after-match meal and refreshments, and we’d like to thank the McGrath family for their hospitality.
This is the 18th time we have won this title and of course to win it in Ballinacourty makes it that little bit more special. Up the Courty!

Club History

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.
