Academy Update
The craic was mighty again on Saturday morning at the field.  We had the U5's & U6's in the astroturf, the U7's were out on the grass while the U10's were honing their hurling skills on the back pitch.
Our U9 hurlers had three really enjoyable matches against Mount Sion on the main pitch.  The numbers were great the hurling was fast and flowing.
The U8's were off-site in Ballinameela playing a blitz.  We welcome anyone who would like to participate in the fun on a Saturday morning so feel free to contact us on our socials or just call out any Saturday morning at 10am.
Our U13's hosted Roanmore on Wednesday evening at the field.  This was a real humdinger with both teams going score for score through the whole match.  The village boys clinched it in the final minutes with a very well taken goal.
The U14 hurlers played Mount Sion on Monday (3rd June) in the Burgery.  This was the division 1 quarter final of the hurling championship and it turned out to be a bit of a nail biter.  The Abbeyside boys took an early lead but with a few minutes to go in the first half they left the monastery men back in to the game by conceding a couple of goals.  Mount Sion grew further into the game and with 10 minutes to go in the second half it wasn't looking good for our lads - they weren't for quitting though.  They battled fiercely hurled with intensity to score 1-02 in the last few minutes to win with a scoreline of 4:10 to 4:09.  The semi final took place on Monday 10th of June, away to Lismore.  Keep an eye on our socials for an update.

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.
