This weekend the hurling recommences with the fixtures as follows –

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.
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.
Sunday Night Bingo continues every Sunday at 8pm.

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.
