Burgess GAA Notes 10th March 2013


Senior League

Our senior hurlers continue their County League campaign with a home fixture against Cashel in Kilcoleman at 4pm Monday 18th of March. Note the change of time and date. Please come out and support the team.

North Tipp Hogan Cup

On Sunday last our senior hurlers bowed out of the Hogan Cup in the quarter final against Moneygall 1:12 to 0:14. The team that started was Paddy Looby, Declan O’Donoghue, Willie Ryan, Peter Gill, Damien O’Brien, Noel Gleeson(0:1), Eoin (Leahy) Hogan, Timmy Hogan, Eoin (Tossy) Hogan, Stephen Murray(7,6f), Brian Hogan(0:3) and Cian McDonnell. Subs used Danny Ryan(0:3),

On a  bitterly cold and windy morning in Kilcolman Burgess faced Moneygall in the senior Hogan Cup quarter final. Though playing against the wind in the first half Burgess held the Lion’s share of possession this however was not translated onto the scoreboard.

The half time score of Burgess 0:06 Moneygall 1:07 didn’t tell the full story of the half, Though Burgess went in four points down at half time they did so with eight wide’s against Moneygall’s three. This would prove critical at the final whistle.

There were also two 21 metre free’s for Burgess the first, hardly seen by the defenders, rocketed off the crossbar for a point the second found a Moneygall stick to send it over the bar.

On the other side of the coin the Moneygall goal when it came was off a defensive error and against the run of play. This is not taking away from the quality of the finish which was exceptional.

The second half saw the weather deteriorate into an icy deluge but Burgess started brightly Five unanswered points saw Burgess into the lead at the fifteen minute mark. This was achieved with the help of marvellous double save from a penalty by paddy Looby between the sticks for Burgess.

Though the game was tied with 31 minutes gone Moneygall snatched victory with a sublime line ball point at the death, their second of the game, into the teeth of the East wind.

All told a game that Burgess could have and perhaps should have won.


Once again we would like to remind all members and players that haven’t already paid this year’s membership to please do so as soon as possible. Any players who aren’t yet paid up are urged to do so immediately.
