U13 County Football Finals
There’s an exciting week ahead for our U13 footballers as both Ballinacourty panels take part in the county finals.  Having beaten Gaultier last Wednesday in their semi final, the division 1 boys play our neighbours Stradbally on Monday 23rd May at 6:30pm in Fraher Field.
The division 4 boys play Gaultier the following evening (Tuesday 24th), again in Fraher Field with throw-in at 6:30pm.  Our opponents will definitely have a large support for both matches so please go along to support our boys!
Best of luck to all players and mentors involved.
Town & Country Football Leagues
Our division 1 team had a bye this week but our division 3 boys recorded a great win against St. Pats on Friday at the field.  It was a really spirited performance from each and every member of the panel.  Both panels now look forward to the semi finals which are scheduled for the coming weekend.
The U11 boys were also in action as they visited Stradbally but did not come away with a victory this time. 
Academy News
Our U8 hurlers had great craic in the sunshine this morning playing an all-county blitz in Carriganore. Even though we were missing a few of the gang we still travelled with 25 young boys from the village.  It was great to see free flowing hurling and the clash of the ash rang out more than a few times!
The only other academy panel that was in action at the weekend was the U10’s because we had lots of players, coaches and family members involved in the first holy communions in the parish last Saturday.  Congratulations to all of our members and friends who made their first communion and best wishes to those in Abbeyside, Garranbane and Scoil Gharbháin who make their confirmation this coming Saturday.
The academy is back in full swing this Saturday and as always; new members are welcome so come along and check it out!
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.
