Medal Presentation

With the new season rapidly approaching, we would like to emphasis the importance of getting your membership paid as soon as possible. If you have not already done so, please contact our membership officer Kevin Tobin on 087 9954448 to arrange payment. From a playing perspective it is compulsory that you are a member as it ensures you are included in the insurance scheme. Rates for this year are Adult €150 / Student €75, Married Couple (non-playing) €70, Single (non-playing) €50 and OAP €40. Of course, members of our 300 Club are fully covered.
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
Aaron Beresford, John Elstead and Brian Looby were all in action for the Waterford Senior Footballers last Sunday in Wexford where unfortunately they were beaten in a close game. This Sunday they welcome Sligo to Fraher Field.
The hurlers meanwhile are in action versus Kilkenny this coming Sunday also.
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.
