Our regular Sunday night Bingo continues every week in the CBS Hall.  Eyes down at 8.00pm.
Our academy has been making the most of the improved weather and hard ground over the past weeks with all age groups getting in plenty of hurling practice as well as games and blitzes.  Our academy always welcomes new members so any boys between the age of 5 and 10 who wants to have lots of fun should come out any Saturday morning and join in.
Our U10 group have had a busy few weeks playing the Déise Óg hurling series against clubs all across the county and this coming weekend they take part in the annual Ballyduff Upper U10 hurling tournament.  The Ballyduff tournament is a rite of passage for U10 boys where they get to pit their skills against clubs from all across Munster.  We’ll have two teams heading off on Saturday morning to represent the club so we wish them well and hope they enjoy the experience.
Last Friday our U12 hurlers welcomed Ballygunner to play the third round of the division 1 All County League.  The young Village boys got off to a great start and it was nip and tuck through the first half with both teams producing very entertaining hurling.  Our boys got the upper hand in the end and won with a scoreline of 2-03 to 1-04.  Well done boys!

U12 Hurlers

After losing out to Gaultier in the division 1 county football final last week, our U13’s take up their hurleys and prepare for championship in the coming weeks. Best wishes to Killian Hagan who has qualified for the county final in the Larry Quinn U13 Hurling Skills competition in Carriganore this week.
Primary Games
Well done to another of our U13 panel, Fionnán Murray, who recently represented his Scoil Gharbháin in the primary games when Waterford played Clare in the Munster Hurling championship.  Fionnán loves his hurling and represented his school and club very well.

Our U15’s also switch to hurling for the summer after both teams narrowly lost out at the semi final stage in the county football championship.   Good luck to all the players and coaches and we look forward to seeing our many members and friends supporting all our juvenile teams through the summer!
“The Field”
Over the past couple of weeks, many people (visitors and club members alike) have been very complimentary of the playing surface at our club ground.  Indeed “the field” is in amazing condition which is great for fast flowing hurling, it’s a credit to our grounds people.

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.
