Our academy continues every Saturday morning through the summer.  It's a great opportunity for boys aged between 5 and 10 to get active and play team sports in a welcoming team environment.
It was a very busy weekend for our enthusiastic U10 group.  On Saturday morning the boys donned the Ballinacourty jerseys to play football out in Aglish in the Déise Óg football series.  The boys played the hosts St. Olivers and St. Mary's.  Each of the boys played two matches and really enjoyed challenges put up to us by our opponents.
It was a quick change of jersey on Sunday morning to put on the blue and gold for hurling.  We hosted Ballygunner and an Ghaeltacht in glorious sunshine and the hurling that all the boys produced reflected the weather.  It was a really enjoyable morning and the boys are looking forward to a long summer of hurling.
We were down on numbers this weekend due to holidays etc. but we were still able to field two teams on both Saturday and Sunday morning.  Playing matches is what it's all about and they will bring the boys on!  Thanks to the parents for the support and for the giant box of ice-pops which were welcomed by all after the matches!  Thanks to our jersey sponsor Mousie's.

U10 Hurlers v Ballygunner & An Ghaeltacht
Well done to our U13 hurlers who hit the ground running in the division 1 hurling championship.  They had a convincing win this evening over Clonea Power on Thursday (20th June).  The field was immaculate and the boys made great use of it.  Next up is Mount Sion and they travel to the city on Wednesday (26th June).

The U15 hurling championship throws-in on Monday (24th June) with our division 1 boys taking on Fourmilewater.  Keep an eye on our socials for updates on the U15 and U13 matches.  Best of luck boys.
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.
