It was a disappointing weekend for both the Waterford Senior Hurlers and Footballers as both exited the championship. Hard luck to all our lads who were involved.
U15 Féile Hurling
Our U15 hurlers contested the 2022 Féile hurling last week and put in some great performances to qualify for the county semi finals in Carriganore.  Unfortunately, they met a very strong Sacred Heart team on the night and did not progress to the final. The boys now switch their focus to the championship and are looking forward to hurling through the summer.
U13 County Football Finals
Keep an eye out on our social media for updates about the U13 county finals that took place on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th.  Our division 1 team played Stradbally and our division 4 team played Gaultier.
Town and Country Football Leagues
The U12 division 1 team qualified for the county final with a convincing win over St. Olivers at the field on Friday evening and the division 3 boys play their semi final out in Clashmore on Wednesday evening at 7pm.  Best of luck boys!
The U11 division 1 team had a great win against the Brickeys on Thursday at the field and the division 2 boys play our neighbours Dungarvan this week too.
Academy News
The U10’s hosted An Ghaeltacht last Saturday morning and played some mighty football in great conditions.
Mini All-Ireland Hurling 2022
This week sees the long awaited return of our Mini All Ireland hurling championships.  It’s the first time since 2019 that we’ve been able to run the event which always proves popular with our younger members.  The team sheets have been posted in to the schools so by now all the boys should know which county they’ll be representing and the teammates that they’ll line out with.  The qualifier rounds take place mid week with the finals day on Saturday morning.  Keep an eye on social media for updates!!
Sunday Night Bingo continues every Sunday at 8pm.

On behalf of all in the club we’d like to extend our sincerest sympathies to the Wade and O Brien families on the death of Deirdre Wade last week.
At the time of the purchase of our grounds there was a substantial amount of fundraising activity and as a member of the Ladies committee at the time Deirdre played a very active role. The O Brien family are of course steeped in the history of our club with Deirdre’s late father Seamus serving for many decades in various roles, whilst brother Brendan was Chairman for a number of years. In more recent times her son Philip won a minor football medal.
Our thoughts are with her family and many friends at this difficult time.
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.
