U-15’s In Portlaoise
Our under 15 squad will surely sleep soundly tonight after an action-packed enjoyable day in Laois today. Firstly, the lads had a great morning in Bogathon adventure centre before travelling onto Portlaoise to cheer on the Waterford hurlers. They were delighted to get their photo with Man of the Match our own Neil Montgomery after the game. We thank the team mentors for all the work they put into organising the day, which no doubt the lads thoroughly enjoyed.

Academy 2023
The end of February always marks a key time in the club calendar because it's when our juvenile academy starts up. This means that Saturday mornings at the field will be full of fun and games for our youngest hurlers and footballers.
The 2023 academy starts on Saturday 25th February, and we cater for boys aged from 5 to 10 who would like to get active and build friendships in a safe, inclusive, team environment.
The start times are as follows: U8, U9 & U10 start at 10:00AM and U5, U6 & U7 start at 10:30AM.
The year kicks off with football so make sure the boys have their gumshields.
Newcomers of all ages are always welcome throughout the season so be sure to come out and sample the fun and there'll be a cup of tea for parents.

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.
