Juvenile Championship Updates
U15 Hurling
Both of our U15 hurling teams began their hurling championship on Monday (20th June) as the division 2/3 boys hosted Naomh Bríd and the division 4 boys played Kilrossanty in Leamybrien.  Keep an eye on social media for the results.
U13 Hurling
Our U13 teams are up and running in their respective championships too and both recorded good wins away to Roanmore (division 1) and at home to Clashmore/Kinsalebeg (division 4).  This Wednesday (22nd June) sees both teams playing Ballygunner in the next round of the championship.  The division 4 boys travel down to Ballygunner while the division 1 match will take place at our own field at 7pm.
U12 Hurling
Our U12’s had a good start to the all county hurling league last Friday (17th June) when they travelled to Tramore and played really well to claim the win.
U11 Hurling
Our two U11 teams are in action this Friday (24th June) with one team taking on De la Salle at 6:30pm in the Burgery and the other heading down the coast to Dunhill to play Na Gaeil.
Academy Update
The academy is as busy as usual with lots of blitzes and fun coaching sessions for U10’s and younger.  The U8’s played football and hurling blitzes in the Fraher Field over the last two weekends, the U9’s played a very well run hurling blitz in Tallow.
There’s a busy summer ahead for all, with school holidays, Cúl Camps and our Well Kids programme, which continues every Saturday morning at 10:30am for boys aged 4-6.
Members of our U12 panel received their new Abbeyside jerseys last which were kindly sponsored by Autoboom fuel and valet service in Sexton Street.
It's great to receive such support from a business located in the heart of our village.
We ask all of our members and friends to support Autoboom, whether it's for fuel, carwash or valet, they provide a great service. Anyone who brings kids to matches will definitely need to get the car cleaned from time to time so you know where to go!

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.
