Championship 2023
We bowed out of the Senior Football championship last Sunday, when losing after a penalty shootout against An Rinn at the Quarter Final stage.
The Junior Footballers are in action this Friday in Ring against Kilrossanty at 7.00pm.
Academy Update
Even as we hit mid-October, the boys of our juvenile academy are still busy with hurling and football.  Our U8’s visited Stradbally on Sunday morning and played very enjoyable hurling matches in the autumn sunshine.
The U9 footballers travelled to Kilworth on Saturday morning to take part in the Munster U9 football blitz. It was a beautiful morning and they lads had great craic playing against St Dominic's (Cork) and Fermoy. Well done boys and thanks to the parents for making the journey.
The U10 boys welcomed James Stephen’s to the field on Saturday morning.  As expected, the challenge from the Kilkenny boys (also known as “The Village”) was a tough one but it was met with a great response from the Abbeyside boys.  Well done to all and thanks to the parent group for providing refreshments afterwards.

Both of our U12 have had busy weekends.  The division 4 team lost narrowly to Ardmore on Friday morning and also to Cappoquin on Sunday morning.  The division 1 team hosted Micheal McCraith Tramore on Friday, recording a convincing win, but lost out to Stradbally on Sunday morning.  They boys now await a fixture for the county semi final so keep an eye out for the fixture.
The U14 division 1 team played the plate final against Clan na Gael on Saturday morning in the newly revamped Walsh Park.  The result didn’t go our way though as Clan na Gael won by 5-8 to 3-9.  Hard luck lads.

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.
