Academy Update
Our academy for boys ten years old and younger, continues every Saturday morning from 10am.  The weather impacted blitzes again this weekend with our U9’s missing out on a trip to Clonmel Commercials to take part in a tournament and our U10’s having to call off a blitz with James Stephens. 
Our U14 division 1 hurlers hosted De la Salle on Saturday morning in conditions that were less than ideal for hurling.  It was nip and tuck throughout the match with De la Salle taking the victory
Our division 3 team were due to play Micheal McCraith Tramore on Saturday evening but due to the heavy rain this match was rescheduled to Wednesday evening at 6:30pm.
U15 County Final
Our U15 hurlers played Clan na Gael on Monday (25th September) in Páirc Uí Siothcáin out in Rinn.  The match was played out in front of a large crowd under the impressive new flood lights.  The Abbeyside boys contested well but were struck with a clutch goal just before half time.  Clan na Gael, who were physically big and strong, played with the breeze in the second half and were able to pull away to take the victory.  Our boys didn’t give up though and kept fighting to the end.  Their efforts were rewarded with a few late scores which demonstrated the spirit in the team. 
The result doesn’t define the season for the U15’s.  They had a good year and have shown impressive development that they will build on for next season.  Well done to the players the backroom team.
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.
