Academy Update
Our academy continues every Saturday morning and any new members are always welcome to call out any Saturday to join in on the fun.
You'd normally associate the phrase "half time show" with the Super Bowl but the half time entertainment in the Abbeyside vs Dunhill senior hurling championship match was brought to you by our mighty U8 hurlers. The boys played Na Gaeil in front of a sizeable crowd and really enjoyed the experience. It was the first of many appearances for these boys in Fraher Field and we look forward to seeing them develop into the future. Half time games like this are a fantastic initiative from Deise Óg and the county board as creates fond memories and a sense of belonging for our young hurlers of the future.
U8s in Fraher Field

U8s in Fraher Field

It was the big ball this week for the U10's as they welcomed our near neighbours St. Pat's to the Burgery to play a series of football matches. The boys are really starting to display excellent teamwork and played with style and determination. Keep it up boys!
Much to the frustration of our U12 footballers, Storm Betty put paid to all fixtures on Friday evening.
By Monday (21st August) our U13 hurlers will have played Mount Sion in round 6 of the division 1 hurling championship. Keep an eye on social media for an update.
Next Monday (28th August) sees both of our U15 teams enter the knockout phase of the championship. The division 2 team play St Molleran’s in Carrickbeg and the division 4 team take on St. Pats in Colligan. They boys have been putting in a great effort throughout the year so please go and support them.

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.
