U11 & U12 Hurling League
Our U12 division 1 team get their All County League on Saturday at midday as De La Salle make the trip down from the city. Tuesday (28th June) also sees the U11’s from De La Salle coming to play our own U11 in their county league and there’s a quick turnaround for the boys as the travel to Waterford on Friday to play Ballygunner and Mount Sion. Good luck to all.
Academy Update
The academy is in full swing for the summer with lots of blitzes and fun-filled coaching sessions taking place. If you have a boy from the age of five to ten years old come along any Saturday morning.
Our under 9’s played two blitz’s over the weekend. Two very enjoyable games against Lismore and Tramore. The lads are currently in the middle of an all county hurling league which is set to continue up until the middle of August with games every second weekend. These games will hopefully bring these lads on even more and they really enjoy representing their club at these events.
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.
