U15 Hurling County Champions
Our U15 hurlers had a fantastic victory in the division 2 county final against Clonea Power last Thursday (29th Sept) in Fraher Field.  Throughout the football and hurling season these two teams have been nip and tuck with matches played at break-neck speed and intensity – this county final would not deviate from the norm.  The first half was very tight and both teams had plenty goal chances but both goalkeepers were in top form, pulling off some outstanding saves.  Clonea Power went in at half time with a slender lead.
The second half was a different story as the village boys dominated proceeding from the off.  Work rate, team play and skilful hurling differentiated the two teams and Abbeyside kept the scoreboard ticking over with some very well taken points.  Surging runs from midfield yielded goals as the boys took over and dominated play.  This county title is the culmination of a long year of training and it’s nothing more than the boys deserve.  Well done to all the players and backroom team!

County U15 Division 2 Hurling Champions, 2022

Déise Óg Hurling Leagues
Our U12 team travelled to Carriganore on Saturday to play the division 1 hurling county final against Ballygunner.  The boys played into a stiff wind in the first half and Ballygunner picked off a few early scores but the Abbeyside boys showed great determination to get back in to the game and at half time Ballygunner lead by 0-09 to 0-05.  Unfortunately in the second half we weren’t able to capitalize on the tailwind but the boys never gave up and battled out to the end.  As you’d expect, the boys were upset at the final whistle but they did themselves, their families and the club proud.  They will have the opportunity to play in plenty more county finals in hurling and football, there’s no doubt about that.
The entire U12 group have had a great year and they continue to develop as a team.  They look forward to the 2023 season and will be as enthusiastic as ever.

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.
