U20 Football
The U20 footballers played Gaultier last Sunday in the Division 1 County Final. After a close game we unfortunately were beaten on a scoreline if 0-10 – 0-08. Hard luck to all involved and the focus now switches to the upcoming hurling championship.
 
Senior Football Reunion
On Saturday evening we had a very enjoyable evening in The Gold Coast, where a reunion was held for the group of players who won our 1st Senior football titles in 1978, 1979 and 1981. Preceding the dinner there was a mass for those involved who unfortunately are no longer with. A good time was had by all, with old friends catching up and many old stories shared.
We’d like to thanks Brendan O Brien and his committee who put a lot of work into organising the night.

Championship 2022
The Senior Footballers bowed out of the championship last Sunday when going down to defeat against The Nire. It was always going to be a tough assignment, but the lads battled gamely right to the end. We’d like to express our thanks to the players and mentors for their efforts throughout the year. Things didn’t go our way this time, but we’ll regroup and come back stronger next year.
 
Condolences
It was with profound sadness that we heard of the passing of Antoinette Enright last Monday morning. Antoinette was a hugely popular lady and of course the Enright family are steeped in the history of our club. Her 3 sons Patrick, Eoin and Stephen all played senior with the club, whilst Doc played for many years and is a club president having previously served in an array of positions including Chairman.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all Antoinette’s family and friends at this difficult time.
We’d also like to express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Anthony Rochford who died tragically last week. Anthony was a popular coach with our camogie club and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

County Medal Presentation
On Saturday evening our U15 division 2 panel got together to in the Gold Coast to celebrate their recent victory in the hurling county final.  The boys enjoyed refreshments while they watched a recording of the match.  The medals were presented by senior players Conor Prunty (who also coached the team) and Michael Kiely.  Well done to all involved on a great season and we look forward to following the boys as they progress through the age ranks.

Mini All Ireland Football Finals
Sponsored by David Walsh Office, School & Computer Supplies
Sunday was a marquee event for our academy boys as over 120 of them gathered to play the finals of the Mini All Ireland Football series.  In total we had 12 teams in action representing their designated counties and it was lovely to see some great football being played with a sense of healthy competition, while fun and participation were at the core of it all.  Proceedings began with the traditional parade to the playing pitch which was lead out by the Pop Up Pipers.  On arrival at the main pitch everyone stood to attention for a rousing rendition of our national anthem before the boys broke off to begin their warm ups. 
Along with the large number of enthusiastic young players came a big crowd of supporters made up of family and friends who cheered on from the sidelines.  The matches were hotly contested, as you might expect, and each of the boys gave their all with the encouragement of the coaches and the supporting crowds.  We had 6 finals and while not everyone could be a winner on the day, each and every one of our young players got due recognition for the effort that they put in, and the all-important medals and goodie bags to mark their participation.
It was fantastic to have the support of the Walsh family on the day and the generous sponsorship of the event from David Walsh Office, School & Computer Supplies, helped to make it special for all the boys taking part.  A special mention must go to young Grace and Jack who presented all the trophies and medals like true professionals – we hope to see both of them lined out in the club colours in the future!  Special thanks must also go to the “Pop Up Pipers & friends”; Noel Fraher, Martin “Switchie” O'Donnell,  Tony O' Shea (drummers), Gareth Higgins (Bass Drum), Liam Egan, Mary Beresford (flag bearers) and John Tynan (pipes). They volunteer their time and they add that bit of magic to the event which makes it special for the players and supporters alike.
All in all it was a great day and thanks to all the coaches for giving their time to organise the preliminary rounds and the finals but most importantly; giving their time and dedication to all of our young players.  Events like this, as well as all of our other activities through the year, help to ensure that we make our games as enjoyable so that we can keep as many boys as possible, playing and having fun.  Keep an eye on our social media for lots more photos and videos.

Mini All-Ireland Football Finals

 
Academy 2022
The Mini All Ireland finals officially brings down the curtain on our academy for the 2022 season.  Our Saturday morning Academy sessions have been going for over 30 weeks and have provided healthy exercise and above all fun, for almost 180 boys between the ages of 5 and 10.  Thanks to all the parents for the support and encouragement throughout the year and to the coaches for their enthusiasm and dedication.  From the perspective of our young players, the juice and biscuits at the end of each session is an essential part of their Saturday mornings so thanks to Ann Doyle, Dorothy Cliffe, Emma Power, Kaye Murray, Liz Power, Louise Byrne, Margo McGann, Paula Morrissey & Terri Foley for always giving a warm welcome to children and adults alike.
Keep an eye out in the spring for the start of the 2023 academy.  New members are always welcome.

Championship 2022
The Senior Footballers overcame Kilrossanty in their County Quarter Final last Sunday. Absolutely horrendous weather conditions ensured it was going to be a tight close affair and so it proved. After playing with the aid of the elements in the 1st half we went in at half time with a 5 point lead. The 2nd half was a real battle as our opponents threw everything at us, but the lads defended resolutely and fought tenaciously for every ball and in the end we ran out 4 point winners.
Next up is a semi final date with The Nire next Sunday in Fraher Field at 2.00pm.
 
Meanwhile the Minors travelled to Walsh Park to take on Gaultier in the Division 1 County Final. This was a great game of football and the lads but in a tremendous performance of which they can be very proud. It was a tight affair all through and after 60 minutes it was all square. The extra time period took a similar pattern, and it was close all the way, with unfortunately Gaultier finishing the stronger which got them over the line.
Having won the plate final of the Division 1 hurling already, this was a very good year for this group of players and each and every one can be proud. Thanks to the players and mentors for their efforts.

U14 Hurling – Munster Super 10’s
Well done to our Under 14 hurlers who took part in the Munster GAA Super 10s blitz on Saturday.  The lads defeated St Marys, Ballygunner and Ballyduff to qualify for the Munster Finals Day in Mallow on November 5th.
 
Academy Update
Even though it’s mid October, our academy boys are still going hard at it!  On Friday evening the U10’s travelled to Killeagh where they gave a great account of themselves.
The U9’s travelled to Mallow to play in the under 9 Munster football blitz.  They lads played Fr. O’Neills (Cork), The Banner (Clare) & Clondrohid (Cork) and had great fun while playing quality football.
The youngest of our hurlers and footballers finished their season on Saturday with their normal fun filled session, followed by goodie bags (thanks to Eurospar, Abbeyside) and medals to reward their effort through the year.  Well done to all the coaches for their enthusiasm and dedication through the year and no doubt they’re looking forward to the 2023 season already.
 
Mini All Ireland Football Tournament
On Saturday morning at the field we have over 60 boys, aged 7 and 8, taking part in the football version of our Mini All Ireland tournament.  They lined out for Cavan, Clare, Donegal, Meath and Waterford and we witnessed some great contests and team work with no shortage of skills on display.  The U7 and U8 groups played the first four fixtures of the round robin section with the U9 and U10 boys scheduled to play their round robin matches on Tuesday (17th Oct).  The finals will take place on Sunday morning (23rd Oct) when we will have over 120 boys contesting for silverware and having fun in what promises to be a very enjoyable morning.
We would like to thank David Walsh Office, School & Computer Supplies for their very generous sponsorship of the Mini All Ireland tournament.  We ask all of our members and friends to support the business whenever they can.

U15 Hurling County Champions
Our U15 hurlers had a fantastic victory in the division 2 county final against Clonea Power last Thursday (29th Sept) in Fraher Field.  Throughout the football and hurling season these two teams have been nip and tuck with matches played at break-neck speed and intensity – this county final would not deviate from the norm.  The first half was very tight and both teams had plenty goal chances but both goalkeepers were in top form, pulling off some outstanding saves.  Clonea Power went in at half time with a slender lead.
The second half was a different story as the village boys dominated proceeding from the off.  Work rate, team play and skilful hurling differentiated the two teams and Abbeyside kept the scoreboard ticking over with some very well taken points.  Surging runs from midfield yielded goals as the boys took over and dominated play.  This county title is the culmination of a long year of training and it’s nothing more than the boys deserve.  Well done to all the players and backroom team!

County U15 Division 2 Hurling Champions, 2022

 
Déise Óg Hurling Leagues
Our U12 team travelled to Carriganore on Saturday to play the division 1 hurling county final against Ballygunner.  The boys played into a stiff wind in the first half and Ballygunner picked off a few early scores but the Abbeyside boys showed great determination to get back in to the game and at half time Ballygunner lead by 0-09 to 0-05.  Unfortunately in the second half we weren’t able to capitalize on the tailwind but the boys never gave up and battled out to the end.  As you’d expect, the boys were upset at the final whistle but they did themselves, their families and the club proud.  They will have the opportunity to play in plenty more county finals in hurling and football, there’s no doubt about that.
The entire U12 group have had a great year and they continue to develop as a team.  They look forward to the 2023 season and will be as enthusiastic as ever.

Championship 2022
All 3 Adult teams were in action last weekend. The Seniors registered a good victory over The Brickies on Sunday and are now qualified for the quarter finals which are fixed for a few weeks time.
The Intermediates began their campaign on Friday evening with a game against Colligan in Fraher Field. After a competitive game we came up just short. Next up is a local derby against Dungarvan on Friday.
On Saturday afternoon the Junior’s travelled to Colligan to take on Affane. After a slow start, we found ourselves 7 points down at half time having played with a strong breeze. The 2nd half performance was superb, and we managed to draw level entering injury time. Unfortunately, however Affane had one last attack which yielded the winning score. Defeat means we are now eliminated from the championship after 2 games. Many thanks to the players and mentors for their efforts.
Meanwhile the Minors continued their championship with a trip to The Brickies on Sunday where the hosts won by 7 points.

U15 Hurling Championship
The division U15 division two boys overcame Sacred Heart last Friday (23rd Sept) in Carriganore to qualify for the county final.  It was a tough physical encounter, but the Abbeyside boys fronted up and won in convincing fashion with a final score of 3-12 to 0-10.
The county final is fixed for 8pm on Thursday evening in Fraher Field where they play Clonea Power.  There has been nothing between the teams this season, so we wish the lads the best of luck and we ask all our members and friends to go over to Fraher Field on Thursday evening to support the lads.
 
U14 Championship
Preparations are well underway for the U14 hurling and football championships.  The championships are being run off quickly this year but none the less the boys will be line out and give it their all to take the titles.  Best of luck to the players and coaching teams.
 
Déise Óg Hurling Leagues
The U12 the division 1 hurlers played the county semi final against De la Salle, last Friday in the Burgery.  They got off to a good start with an early goal and went on to take the victory with a score line of 3:17 to 2:03.  The boys now have the county final against Ballygunner at 1pm on Saturday in Carriganore.
Hopefully we’ll have two U12 county finals to play on Saturday as Our U12 division 5 hurlers play their own county semi final, also against De la Salle, in Gracedieu on Monday (26th Sept).  Keep an eye on social media for an update on how the boys got on.
 
Academy Update
As well as our usual Saturday morning academy sessions the U8s were on the road again as they travelled to Carriganore to play in a blitz organized by Déise Óg.  It’s great for the boys to take part in these blitzes because it gives them the opportunity to play teams that they may not normally encounter.

U15 Hurling Championship

Our U15 boys had mixed fortunes in the knockout stage of the championship in the past week.  Last Wednesday (14th Sept) the division 2 team played out an exciting encounter against a big physical St. Mary’s.  The group team from mid-county pushed our boys all the way to injury time when a well taken free clinched the victory for the village lads with a score of 2-12 to 3-08.  They now go on to play Sacred Heart in the semi final on Friday evening in Carriganore.  Throw-in is at 6:15pm so please go along and give the boys the support they deserve.

On Saturday morning (17th Sept) in Cappoquin our division 4 hurlers bowed out of the championship in a hotly contested plate semi final against Clashmore.  Having lost to Clashmore in the final match of the round robin stage the boys really upped their game  and lead for good spells of the game.  After a really great performance they sadly lost out by the narrowest of margins finishing on 0-09 to 2-02.  This group can hold their heads high after putting in a lot of hard work through the season and showing great development as the season progressed.  Well done to all.

 

Déise Óg Hurling Leagues

Our U12 division 1 team travelled to Ballygunner on Friday evening to play the last game of the round robin matches in the county hurling league.  The Abbeyside boys fought hard and played some great hurling but Ballygunner took the victory in the end by 3-08 to 1-07.

Both our division 1 and division 4 teams have made the semi final stages in the U12 leagues and both teams face De la Salle at the weekend.

 

U11 Tournament Victory in Cork

The U11’s made the quick switch from hurling to football last week and had only two training sessions before travelling to the outskirts of Cork city to take on some top quality competition in the annual Mick O’ Leary tournament, hosted by Glanbia Football Club.  The tournament consisted of some of the top clubs around the country, including Cuala (Dublin), Lucan Sarsfields (Kildare), St. Finbarrs (Cork).  This level of opposition didn’t deter the boys from Ballinacourty though as they topped their group, beating Valley Rovers, St. Finbarr’s and Lucan Sarsfields.  They were drawn against the famous Austin Stack’s in the semi final and overcame the challenge with quality football and impressive work rate.  The final saw the lads take on the hosts Glanmire and after a very tough encounter Ballinacourty claimed the victory and brought the cup back to our parish.  This was a great achievement from this group and it’s well deserved after the dedication and effort that they have put in throughout the season.   

Victorious U11 Footballers

 

Academy Update

Saturday was busy for our academy teams with the U7’s welcoming our neighbours Stradbally to the Burgery where they played loads of games in very well run blitz.  The boys all had great fun and really enjoyed the games in the lovely weather.

Meanwhile, the U8’s made the trip to Tramore to play a hurling blitz against Micheál MacCraith Tramore and Ballygunner.  The boys really enjoyed the games and competed very well with the eastern clubs and deserved the refreshments afterwards.  We knew that U8’s were well able to hurl but they also showed that they have the makings of formidable choir.  On the bus home they belted out the classics like “Up the Village” and “Everywhere we go…”.  It was a great morning and was enjoyed by all.

Our academy continues every Saturday morning from 10am and keep an eye out in the coming weeks for the return of our Mini All Ireland Football series.

Club Notes - 14th September

Club Lotto
Our weekly lotto takes place on Tuesday night next. Next week's Jackpot will be €4,000. Tickets can be purchased from club sellers and by clicking on the following link - https://abbeycourtygaa.clubzap.com/categories/lotto/products
 



Championship 2022
The football championships kick off this weekend with both the Senior and Junior A teams kicking off their campaigns.
The Seniors face Clashmore in Fraher Field at 13.45 on Sunday whilst the Juniors face off against Geraldine’s on Friday also in Fraher Field at 19.30.
Meanwhile the Minors had 2 games last week registering a draw against Clan na Gael and a very good victory over The Nire. This Sunday they travel to Gaultier for an 11.00 throw in.
 
U13 Hurling Championship
Even an orange weather warning on Sunday couldn’t deter the boys of the U13 division 4 panel from turning on style to claim a well deserved county title.  A determined St. Pats panel meant that our boys had more than the weather to worry about and both teams displayed great touch and striking in awful conditions.  Abbeyside held a narrow lead at half time and St. Pat’s came out firing well early in the second half.  The lads responded and upped the efforts and with the help of four goals, went on to claim the title for the village with a score of 5-08 to 1-05.  Rory Mulcahy raised the cup on behalf of his team mates and spoke really well, thanking his coaches and St. Pat’s for a very sporting contest.
The other half of our U13 group were in action on Thursday evening in Carriganore in the division 1 county semi final, where they played Mount Sion in a fixture that was originally due to take place on the previous Tuesday. This really was an exciting encounter and the game ebbed and flowed as both teams wrestled for control.  It was great to see such a high level of skill and work rate from a group of young boys but unfortunately, it was not to be for our lads.  Half way though the second half there was only a point between the two teams but a couple of quick goals saw Mount Sion take a lead that the boys weren’t able to overcome.  The disappointment after the game was obvious but the panel can hold their heads high.  They will be in the mix for county titles again in the future, there’s no doubt about that!
The U13 championships have now come to an end and all the players, coaches and people involved with this group can look back on a very successfully year.  Between the division 1 & division 4 panels, they’ve won three out of the four championships that they entered in hurling and football which is an amazing return.  Just as important though is how enjoyable it was for the boys and how much they developed as a team and as individuals throughout the year.  Well done to all involved.

U13 County Hurling Division 4 Champions, 2022

 
U15 Hurling Championship
Knockout hurling is fast approaching for both of our U15 panels.  The division 4 boys have one match remaining in the round robin phase, travelling to Clashmore on Monday (12th). The division 2/3 team have a home quarter final on Wednesday (14th) against St. Mary’s with throw-in at 6:15pm.  We ask all our members and friends to make an effort to get along and support both of our U15 teams in the coming weeks.
 
Déise Óg Hurling Leagues
Neither of our U12 teams saw any action this week but the division 1 team travel to Ballygunner on Friday evening for the final match of the league section.  Both the division 1 and division 5 teams have qualified for their respective semi finals and await the fixtures to see who they play.
Our U11 division 1 team played out an epic battle against Ballygunner on Friday in the Burgery.  The hurling was fast and fierce and the match ended in a draw with impressive scoring of 1-10 a piece.
Our division 5 U11 boys played Ballyduff Upper, and despite battling hard we lost out in the end. 
Both U11 teams have shown great progress and improvement in their skills and teamwork throughout the year which is testament to their dedication and the guidance from the coaching team.
 
Academy Update
Saturday morning was busy as usual with boys from 5 to 10 honing their skills and having fun in the unseasonably warm weather.  Plans are afoot for the mini All Ireland football competition
The U9’s gathered at the clubhouse before jumping on a bus to Castlecomer where they played Erin’s Own in a hurling blitz.  The boys had great craic in all the matches that they played against a traditional hurling stronghold in Kilkenny and they represented the club very well indeed!  These boys will have long playing careers ahead of them but it has also emerged that some could also have a career in the music industry based on the sing-song on the bus on the way home.  Days like this are all about making memories with your team mates and building a team spirit, well done to the coaches for organizing.
