Academy Update
Our boys academy runs every Saturday morning from 10am at our club grounds (X35 E896).  If you have a boy between the age of 5 and 10 bring them along to join in on the fun.  The field was busy again on Saturday morning with coaching sessions and matches.
After all the wind and rain on Thursday morning (13th June) the evening turned out to be very suitable for a game of football and our U10's made the most of it.  They welcomed Na Gaeil and Clashmore/Kinsalebeg as part of the Deise Óg U10 football series.  It was a really enjoyable evening's football for all the children that took part.
U10 Footballers

On Saturday morning (15th June) Kinsale were the visitors to the field to play hurling against our U11 boys.  Kinsale were similar in numbers to us so we lined out three teams with each of the 25 boys getting a good hour's hurling. It was an excellent run out for the Village boys and the refreshments (kindly provided by our enthusiastic parent group) were well deserved.  We'll look forward to making the return journey.
Our U12s had a busy week. On Tuesday (11th June) they hosted Killeagh in a challenge match that was a fantastic test for both teams.  This match set the lads up for another tough encounter against St Pats on Friday evening (14th June).  The trip to Colligan saw both teams put on an entertaining display of hurling for those that travelled.  The boys battled until the final whistle and showed great maturity to see out the game.
Our U14's bowed out of the U14 division 1 championship last Monday (10th June) in the semi final stage.  The boys lost out to Lismore on a scoreline of 3:12 to 3:08.  They struggled to get going in the first half but came roaring back into the game in the second period with a very strong performance.  It really was in the mix in the last five minutes as they closed the gap to two points but Lismore did enough to clinch it.  Best of luck to Lismore in the county final.
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.
