Intercounty
All roads lead to Walsh Park this Sunday when the Waterford Senior Hurlers take on Cork in a vital Munster Championship game. Best of luck to all involved especially our own lads, Conor, Neil and Michael.
 
County League
The football league continued last weekend with the Seniors registering a 1 point victory against Stradbally last Friday evening on a score line 1-14 to 2-10. The Intermediates were in action also and lost by 1 point versus Sliabh gCua 4-09 to 4-10.
 
This weekend the hurling recommences with the fixtures as follows –
 
County Hurling League Division 7 Round 3
Abbeyside B v Passage B – Abbeyside, Saturday, 14th May, 5:00pm
 
U15 Football Semi Finals
Last Monday (2nd May) saw both of our U15 teams take part in their respective county semi finals. Our division 1 team played Rathgormack in Dungarvan club grounds and lost out by two points after being 11 points down at one stage. It was a tough defeat but everyone in the panel can hold their head high as they really battled hard.
The division 4 team lost out in the plate semi final against Portlaw/Ballyduff in Leamybrien. The boys put in their best performance of the year and can be very proud of themselves.
At juvenile level, success isn’t measured entirely by winning championships. Both of our U15 panels have really improved as individuals and as a team throughout the year. There will be better days ahead for them and great credit must go to the coaches that give their time and dedication to help the boys develop.
 
U13 Football Semi Final
The boys of the division 4 team took the short spin down to Stradbally to take on St. Pats in their semi-final last night (4th May). After a super intense contest the Ballinacourty boys took the victory by a single point with a score of 0-10 to 0-09. Well done boys and best of luck in the county final.
Our division 1 team play their semi final against Gaultier on Wednesday evening in Stradbally at 6:30pm. Best of luck boys!
 
Town & Country Football Leagues
Our U12 boys were in action on Friday (29th April) as one group made the trip Tramore and came away with a victory while the other group lost narrowly at home after a good performance against Clashmore. They also played out an exciting draw against Stradbally on Friday 6th May.
The U11 lads also had mixed fortunes as one group beat St. Oliver’s and the other group lost to Lismore.
 
Academy
Our academy continues every Saturday morning and new members are always welcome. Planning has begun for the return of the “Mini All Irelands” for the first time since 2019. Covid meant that we couldn’t run this for the past two years but we’re delighted to reinstate the tournament because it always generates excitement and enjoyment for all the boys. Watch this space!
 
U10 Football
Well done to our under 10's who put in a fantastic morning of football out in the Dungarvan GAA grounds last Saturday. It was a great morning for football and the lads made the most of it. Thanks to Dungarvan and Brickey Rangers for two tough games.

U15 Football Championship
The division 1 boys continued their 100% record in the championship with a win against the Brickeys on Monday evening while the division 4 team played some great stuff to claim the win against Clashmore/Kinsalebeg.  Well done lads!
 
U13 Football Championship

The division 1 panel hosted Gaultier on Wednesday and came out on top with a four point victory.
 
Town & Country League
One of our U12 panels lost out to St. Olivers by a point on Friday 15th and our other U12 panel travelled to Ballyduff Upper where they put in a good performance but lost out in the end.

Academy Update – Under 9s
The under 9’s have been back at the pitch since February 26th with a 4 week block of football training completed followed by a blitz against Gaultier on March 26th which was a great success. We are currently in the midst of a hurling block and we are played a very entertaining hurling blitz against Midleton last Saturday. With the pitches starting to firm up and the long evenings on the way the kids and coaches are looking forward to a busy summer of activities. We hope to hold a mini All Ireland 9 a side internal competition with the under 10’s during May and we encourage all parents to get involved with this great event.
 
Well Kids!
The Well Kids programme officially got up and running last Saturday morning and our astroturf was awash with a gaggle of four to six year old boys running and hopping and jumping and falling.  Generally just having great craic! It was great to see the coaches making the most of things like hula-hoops and pool-noodles (not your conventional coaching equipment!) to help start the GAA journey for the young boys in a really fun and positive way.  Our academy is always open to new members so if you have a boy aged between 4 and 10 years old just get in touch through our Facebook page or email abbeycourtyjuvenilesec@gmail.com

National Hurling League Champions
Pride of place this week goes to the Waterford Senior Hurlers who scored a magnificent victory over Cork last Saturday evening in the Division 1 hurling league final. It was a particularly proud evening for our own club as we had 3 players, Conor Prunty, Neil Montgomery & Michael Kiely on the starting 15. And of course, Conor had the great honour of lifting the trophy. The win in fact doubles the amount of league medals to be won by club players, with the lads joining Austin Flynn & John McGrath 1963 plus Richie Foley 2007.
All eyes now are on the clash with Tipperary on Easter Sunday in the Munster Championship. Hopefully we can see the momentum built up over the league campaign maintained.

Any club member interested in tickets for the aforementioned game please have your name with secretary Jonathan O’Donovan by 6pm Sunday.

County Hurling League Division 7 Round 1
Abbeyside B v Clonea B – Abbeyside, Saturday, 9th April, 3:00pm

Academy Update
Our under 10s are back in full swing with training on Saturdays 10-11.20 and Tuesdays 6.30 to 7.30. The focus at the moment is on football and movement but over the coming weeks, we will be mixing it up with some hurling too. The next few weeks will be busy for the lads as they will be playing in the all-county under 10 football league with 10 other teams from across Waterford. Make sure to come along and give the lads some support. The under 10s and the coaches are delighted to congratulate Conor Prunty, Neil Montgomery, Michael Kiely, and the rest of the Waterford team on their League Final last Saturday - It is great to have such ambassadors for the young players to look up to!




 
Under 11 Football
Our under 11 boys got their first taste of competitive football on Sunday morning as they made the short trip across the bridge to take on Dungarvan in the Town and Country league. They played some great football and recorded a great win. Well done boys! The other half of our under 11 panel play on Tuesday evening against the Nire. Best of luck lads!
 
Juvenile Football Championship
It was a busy week for our U13 & U15 footballers as we had four teams in action.
On Monday evening (28th March) our U15 Div1 team had a good win against St Olivers out in Ballinameela while the Div 4 lost unluckily lost out to Affane after leading at half time.
Monday evening (4th April) sees our Div 4 team host Stradbally while the Div 1 boys are away to Rathgormack. Both matches throw in at 6:15PM.
On Wednesday (30th March) our two U13 teams were in action, playing in bitterly cold and windy conditions. The Div 1 boys played Naomh Brid in Modeligo while the Div 4 boys hosted Clashmore/Kinsalebeg and both of our U13 teams recorded convincing victories.
Well done to all the players and mentors involved because it takes a lot of effort and commitment to line out two championship teams in each age group but it's worth it to see so many boys having the opportunity to wear the jersey and play competitive games.

Academy Update
Our under 8 boys enjoyed the spring sunshine on Saturday morning as 27 of them took to the field for a fun and active football session.  As well as ducking and diving through obstacle courses, the boys took part in fun activities aimed at developing the core skills of football and build team spirit. The juice and biscuits at the end of training were well deserved!  Our academy runs every Saturday morning and new members are always welcome.


 
Under 9 Football Blitz
Our club grounds were also busy on Saturday afternoon when our under 9 footballers welcomed Gaultier to play a football blitz.  31 young Ballinacourty footballers lined out and played four fun-filled matches against the boys from the Barony.  It was all smiles afterwards as the boys enjoyed the well-deserved refreshments.
 
Under 13 Hurling Day Out
34 of our under 13 boys travelled by coach to Kilkenny on Sunday to take in the national hurling league semi-final.  Before going to Nowlan Park they played James Stephens, who like us, are also known as “The Village”.  It was the boys’ first hurling match for a long time and gave a really good account of themselves before going on to support their clubmates Neil and Mikey as they lined out against Wexford.
 
Under 13 & Under 15 Football Championship
On Monday 28th our under 15 division 1 team play St. Olivers in Ballinameela while our division 4 team host Affane in the Burgery. Our under 13 divison 1 team are away to Naomh Bríd on Wednesday evening while the division 4 boys take on Clashmore/Kinsalebeg at our club grounds.  Best of luck to all!
 
Intercounty
The Waterford Senior Hurlers scored a resounding victory over Wexford last Sunday in the Division 1 League semi-final with our own Neil Montgomery and Michael Kiley playing prominent roles. They now face off against Cork in the Final in Thurles this Saturday evening at 19.15 and we wish all involved the very best of luck. It would be fantastic to bring a national title back to the Deise.
 
Aaron Beresford, and Brian Looby meanwhile were part of the Waterford Senior Footballers panel last Sunday in Cavan where unfortunately they were beaten.

U15 Football Championship
We had mixed fortunes for our under 15 footballers on Sunday morning when we lined out two teams in the championship. Our division 1 side recorded a convincing 7-04 to 1-01 victory down in Tramore to continue their great start to the championship.
Our division 4 team hosted Portlaw/Ballyduff Lower in the Burgery and despite a valiant effort, they lost out to our much bigger and physically stronger visitors.
 
Academy Update
Our pitches were closed on Saturday morning due to the heavy rain in the previous days so our academy had to be postponed. This didn't stop our under 10's though as they hit the beach in Ballinclamper to make sure that they didn't miss out on any valuable practice time. This was great idea from the coaches and the boys had great craic too!
We're back in action at our club grounds in the Burgery next Saturday morning for boys aged between 5 & 10. New members are always welcome and if you have any questions you can contact us through our Facebook page or by emailing abbeycourtyjuvenilesec@gmail.com.

U15 Football Championship
Our division 1 team had a good start to their campaign, recording a 6-12 to 0-02 win over Gaultier. There's a lot more hard work to be put in but it was a great team performance and they now begin preparations for their next opponents, Tramore, this weekend.
Our division 4 team put in a spirited display against Naomh Brid in their first outing last Sunday morning in Modeligo. The result didn't go their way, losing 2-09 to 1-03, but a lot of these boys are under 15 again next year so each time they line out together they gain valuable experience.
It's great to see that our policy of developing our young players is being advanced through entering two teams at each age group in the juvenile championships. This means that all of our young players get as much game time as possible and have the opportunity to develop to their full potential. Well done to all the boys and we look forward to following their journey through the year.
 
Academy Update - Nursery
We have started back with our U5/6 boys, and we are full steam ahead. We had 32 at last Saturday’s session. The lads are having great fun enjoying the various activities and games with our coaches. We are using stations to practice the basic skills of catching, kicking, running, and socialising, with a mixture of fun and mayhem thrown in for good measure. We’ll see everyone back on next Saturday the 11th at 10:30. Any newcomers always welcome. You can contact us through our Facebook page or by emailing abbeycourtyjuvenilesec@gmail.com.

Academy 2022
The end of February always marks a key time in the club calendar because it's when our juvenile academy starts up. This means that Saturday mornings at the field will be full of fun and games for our youngest hurlers and footballers.
The 2022 academy starts on Saturday 26th February, and we cater for boys aged from 5 to 10 who would like to get active and build friendships in a safe, inclusive, team environment.
The start times are as follows: U8, U9 & U10 start at 10:00AM and U5, U6 & U7 start at 10:30AM.
The year kicks off with football so make sure the boys have their gumshields.
Newcomers of all ages are always welcome throughout the season so be sure to come out and sample the fun and there'll be a cup of tea for parents.
If you have any questions, you can email abbeycourtyjuvenilesec@gmail.com or contact us through the club Facebook page.

County Champions
The year got off to the best possible start last Friday evening when our U20 footballers defeated Rathgormack 1-05 to 0-05 in the delayed 2021 County Final. It was a very hard-fought victory with the lads showing great composure and battling qualities to overcome excellent opponents. From the outset it was obvious we were in for a tough evening and so it proved as the hour progressed. We had to work hard for each score whilst at the other end the lads put in a fine defensive performance to limit opportunities for Rathgormack. It was clear that a goal would be a decisive score and so when Michael Kiely raised the green flag we were in a great position and thankfully we held out to the great joy of players and supporters alike.
This was a magnificent team performance and each and every player, along with Mark Ferncombe and his management team can be very proud of their efforts. The win caps a fine season for this great bunch of players who also of course won the hurling Western title.
It's a significant win as we won the very first under 20 County title having won the last under 21 title (we also contested the 1st final) and indeed, we won the only under 19 Championship that was played too. It was especially poignant to be the first team to receive the Greg Fives Cup and when DJ Kiely lifted the cup, we're sure the big man was smiling down with pride.
Also well done to man of the match Michael Kiely who’s had a busy few days!

U12 Poc Fada
Our under 12 hurlers had their second annual Poc Fada last Saturday in very challenging conditions on Abbeyside beach. We had 22 players split into seven teams that took on the course in the heart of the parish. 
The boys started under the ruins of the abbey and pucked their sliotars as far as far as the cove and back again. The team that completed the course in the fewest pucks would be crowed the winners. The tricky two-kilometre course meant that the boys had to consider many factors, from rocks to seaweed and even dog walkers, but the fierce headwind that they faced as they turned at the cove and struck for home, was the biggest challenge.
The practice that the boys have been putting in over the last few weeks stood them in good stead as there was some impressively long striking which led to low scoring from all the teams.
The winners on the day were Rory, Danny and Sean Óg, with Noah, Kieran and Tomas as runners up. Darrach, Fionn and Darragh coming in third place.
Well done to all the boys who took part!

This weekend the hurlers are in action again versus Laois and we wish them the best of luck.

Sympathy
It was with a deep sense of shock we learnt of the sudden passing of former player Michael O Connor on Sunday. On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to his family and wide circle of friends. The O Connor family have of course a long association with our club, with Michael’s father Danny playing many years and indeed was a member of the 1st Abbeyside team to win an adult title when we defeated Dunhill in the 1950 Junior Hurling Final. Michael and his brothers Liam and Austin carried on that tradition for many years and Michael himself was part of some of our greatest moments as a member of the Senior Football panel in 1978 and 1979, whilst also winning an U21 football title in 1971.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
 
Munster Club
Congratulations to Ballygunner on their victory over Kilmallock on Sunday in the Munster Club Senior Hurling Final. It’s great to see a Waterford team flying the flag successfully on the national stage and we wish them all the best in the upcoming All Ireland series.
