U9 Hurlers
On Saturday our U9’s welcomed Youghal for a competitive morning of hurling. Each of our three teams competed well in all of their games. The progress is visible and the boys are really enjoying competing against other clubs. Training will continue on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.
The WellKids programme will be running in the club again this July and August.
WellKids is an initiative introduced by Déise Óg which introduces children aged 4-6 to GAA activities in a fun games based approach.
So if your child was born in 2017, 2018 or 2019 then this is a great chance for them to try out GAA.
Where: AstroTurf in Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA grounds.
When: 10:30-11:30 on Saturday mornings for July and August.
Bring: A water bottle (labelled)
No extra equipment is needed but feel free to bring a hurley and helmet if you have them.
If you have any questions or your child is older and wants to try GAA then please email
Camogie News
Another active week for the club!
This week our U8's had the honour of playing at half time in the SETU Arena during the Waterford vs Antrim Senior camogie game. Great excitement as the girls formed a guard of honour for the girls as they ran out onto the pitch. A great day was had by all, and a big thanks to Waterford camogie, the coaches, parents and guardians for helping to make it happen!
Huge congratulations to our own Dearbhla Beresford and Megan O’Regan representing Abbeyside on the team, well done girls and thank you for all the hurley and jersey signing after the game!

U15 Camogie
Well done also to Sophie Norris and Abbie ODonnell representing Abbeyside on the Waterford U15 camogie panel, keep up the great work! 

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.
