The field was a hive of activity during our recent Summer Camp with large numbers having a great time. We’d like to thank Michael O Halloran, Brian Looby, Seanie Callaghan, Eoin Kiely, Darragh Walsh, Rosin Tobin and Aisling Tobin for all their efforts and also to our 3 intercounty players, Michael Kiely, Neil Montgomery and Conor Prunty who visited.

U15 Hurling Championship
Neither of our under 15 teams saw any action on Monday (15th August) as all championship matches were postponed at the last minute by Bord na nÓg, due to the risk of thunder storms.
The division 2/3 team take on Cappoquin in the Burgery on Monday 22nd.
Déise Óg Hurling Leagues
Both U12 teams are on the road this coming Friday as they take on Stradbally and St. Saviours.
The U11 division 1 team had two tough challenges against Mount Sion and Lismore during the week.  They lost out in both matches but continue to show good improvement and as they progress through the season.
The division 5 were very unlucky to lose out in Ardmore.  They were two points up in injury time and Ardmore struck with a goal from a free to take the win by the narrowest of margins.
Academy Update
It was a typically busy week for our academy and after a good spell of hurling, our under 10s returned to football by taking part in the Dungarvan GAA football tournament last Saturday. The morning saw some exciting games played by the 15 teams involved, and the spectators got a great display of football by the young lads. Ballinacourty’s two teams put in solid performances to reach the cup semi-final and the shield semi only narrowly missing out in a place in both finals. Well done to all involved.

The field was busy on Saturday morning with the usual academy coaching sessions and the under 8’s welcomed Ballygunner for a hurling blitz.  We had 32 boys so we fielded four teams who played very good hurling and competed very well with our friends from the east of the county.  Well done to all.
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.
