The field was buzzing with activity on Saturday morning as our young hurlers and footballers honed their skills under the guidance of with dedicated coaches. All our pitches and astroturf were being put to good use, from the youngest boys who continue their Well Kids programme, up to our U10 boys who are preparing for the Go Games football blitzes.
The U8's had a later start than usual though. They welcomed Ballygunner, Tramore and Clan na Geal and played out a series of fun hurling matches, cheered on by a big crowd. After sharing refreshments with their friends from the east of the county, the village boys then decamped to Fraher Field to support our senior hurlers. It was great to see so many boys decked out in the blue and gold to support the seniors and no doubt a fair share of these U8 boys will be lining out for the club at adult level in the future! Well done to all.
Our U13 hurlers, having played a series of challenge matches over the past six weeks, are a week out from the resumption of their championship campaign and are looking forward to playing Passage at home on 7th August.
Monday 31st July sees both of our U15 teams in championship action with the division 1/2 hosting Tramore and division 4/5 playing Kilrossanty in Leamybrien. Good luck boys!

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.
