We express our gratitude to Nicky Dwane (pictured here with his son Jack) for his very generous sponsorship of two sets of Ballinacourty jerseys for our juveniles.  The jerseys will be worn with pride by our U12 and U13 footballers.
Nicky Dwane Sponsorship

The sunshine last Saturday morning was very welcome and we had a big turnout for our academy.  It was great to see all the boys with hurleys in hand running, jumping and pulling on the ball as they had great craic with their friends and coaches.  Thanks to all the refreshment crew that are on hand rain hail or shine to dole out the treats after training.  On warm days like last Saturday, the juice and biscuits are essential for cool-down and recovery!
The only gang that weren’t at the field on the day was our U9’s who were playing a hurling blitz in Waterford against Ballygunner and Mount Sion.
Our U13 footballers are awaiting a date for the div 1 plate final, when they will take on our neighbours Stradbally.  Best of luck boys.
Both our U15 football panels are in action this week in their respective county semi finals.  On Tuesday (14th May) the division 1 panel will travel to Kill to take on Stradbally while the division 4 boys play St. Pat’s in the Dungarvan club grounds.  Good luck to all.

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.
