U10 Football
On Saturday last we held a blitz tournament at our club grounds where we welcomed teams form Rathgormack and Brickey Rangers.
A great morning of football with some fantastic football skills shown by all teams. The Ballinacourty team continue to train for the Under 10 Bord na nÓg all county football league which will kick off on July 29th.

U9 Hurling
Last Saturday, our U9s hosted our nearest neighbours, Dungarvan and traditional hurling stronghold, Lismore to our grounds.
On a morning where monsoon-like downpours became frequent, all teams showed an array of skills, determination and some sublime converted scores cheered on by a large crowd.
The lads have worked very hard at home and on the training field and was reflected on the pitch Saturday morning.
We will continue to train every Thursday @18:00 and Saturday with our Academy @10:00 and look forward to more enjoyable blitzes over the summer period.

U13 Hurling
Our Under 13 hurlers continued their July series of games with a trip to the GAA’s National Development Centre, in Blanchardstown in Dublin, to play Kilmacud Crokes. The lads had a great day with an early start and a visit to the Aqua-Zone in the National Aquatic Centre after the game. They played a great hour of hurling on the 4G pitch and in the end came out on top against Crokes. It was a super day out for the boys. Many thanks to Joe Cleary and Hallahan Coaches for getting the team to Dublin and home safely and to Kilmacud for facilitating the game. The boys next game is against Carrick Swans on Monday.

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.
