County Final U12 Football Burgess v Ballyporeen Sunday 19th May 2013 in Drombane

photo (10)

Our u12’s were pipped at the post after a heroic comeback in the second half of their county football final thriller against Ballyporeen on Sunday last. Great credit is due to our young footballers for the way they fought back to get within a point of a strong Ballyporeen outfit.

We were 1-1 to no score down at half time but came out battling in the second. We were within a point with 3 minutes remaining but alas it was Bally who were to get the final score to seal the match at 1-3 to 1-5.

We thank the players and mentors for their efforts and commitment this year. They have brought great honour to the parish.

Junior A League

Our junior A’s defeated Kilruane comfortably in the North Junior A hurling league on Saturday last. We had the better of the first half, leading 10 points to 3 at half-time.

Any chance of a Kilruane comeback in the second half was soon dashed when Kevin Nealon goaled a mere 15 seconds after the restart.  A fine display of point taking in greasy conditions thereafter saw our boys run out convincing winners on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-7. A score which coincidentally is the exact same winning margin as the previous week’s victory over Moneygall.

Well done to the players and management.

Dunne finally begins life at hurling’s top table

Great piece about our exiles here

jellyfishman2013

London’s opening game against Carlow this weekend will begin an unlikely journey in the Leinster hurling championship for one Tipperary man. Tony Dunne came from a talented bunch of hurlers which won an All-Ireland Minor hurling final in 2006, under the stewardship of Liam SheedyImage.

The minor full-forward tasted glory that year with fifteen of Tipperary’s current senior hurling panel. Like many of his former team-mates the progression to senior hurling with the premier county seemed to be the next step for the Burgess native. Dunne moved to London in late 2009 as there was no opportunity of employment in Ireland after he finished his honours degree in Edinburgh.

A talented athlete, he has played football for his county, from minor to senior level. In 2006, he also represented Ireland in the u17 International Rules series. He travelled to play against Australia with players like Dublin’s Kevin Nolan and…

County Semi Final U12 Burgess v Aherlow Sunday 12th May 2013 in Holycross

victory

 

 

Burgess went into the game as the last North team standing in the County semi finals.  Burgess won the toss and elected to play against the strong breeze in the first half.

Aherlow got the first score of the game with a well taken point after five minutes.  Burgess were defending well and on a break Cathal Conneally delivered a long ball into the Aherlow square.  The Aherlow full back and gaol keeper misjudged the ball and it ended up in the back of the net. Aherlow full forward was one on one with the Burgess goal keeper Kiefer O’Brien who made an unbelievable save. Aherlow applied a lot of pressure and scored three more points during the first half to leave the score Aherlow 4pts Burgess 1-00 at half time.

Burgess got a dream start in the second half when Tom Gibson scored a goal after one minute. This was followed soon after by a well taken point by Cathal Conneally.  Burgess dominated the next ten minutes of the second half with Cathal Conneally on fire scoring an excellent goal form a 45. Burgess continued to dominate for the remainder of the second half with Sean Dunne  and Cathal Conneally adding a point each.  In the final moments of the game Sean Dunne scored an excellent point to leave the final score Burgess 3 -05. Aherlow 0 – 04

Great credit is due to all these U12 players, they have never been found wanting and have always done what the coaches have asked of them.  It was great to see such support from the Parish and continued support is needed for County final next Saturday, time and venue to follow.

Our junior A’s recorded a fine win over Moneygall on Saturday last. Though we hurled with aid of a strong breeze it was Moneygall who  began the brighter racing into a 0-3 to 0-1 lead after 5 minutes.

We reeled in and overhauled Moneygall  lead and by the half time whistle we were 0-10 to 0-04 ahead.

The second half saw us out score Moneygall 1-7 to 0-3 and run out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-7.

Well done to the players and management.

U12 North Football Final

WP_000141

Burgess 2-05 Portroe 1-03 Saturday 4th May

Burgess won the toss and elected to play against the strong breeze in the first half. Both teams were evenly matched in the first ten minutes with Portroe registering the first point. A well taken goal by Micheal Ryan after 12 minutes put Burgess in the lead. Portroe applied a lot of pressure for the remainder of the half and scored another point leaving the score Burgess 1-00 Portroe 0-02 at half time.

In the second half Portroe got the first score to level the game. Burgess with a few switches started to take control of the game Jack O Keefe scored a well taken point from play and another from a free to leave Burgess two points ahead ten minutes in the second half. Caoilfhionn Maher scored a great goal followed by a point each by Cathal Conneally and Jack O’Keefe. On the break Portroe scored a goal. Burgess then finished strongly with a well taken point by Sean Dunne.

Congratulations to the players and management who have done the parish proud. It took great heart, determination and belief to win today and these lads have it in abundance. It was great to see such great support from the parish on the day.

We also remind parents that a DVD is available of the game. Please contact the management for further details.

Junior A League

Our junior A hurlers had a hard fought 3-09 to 1-09 away win over Lorrha on Saturday last. Though we hurled with wind advantage in the first half we went in with only a one point lead at half time, 1-05 to 1-04.

Our job became tougher just after the restart when we were reduced to 14 men but to our lads credit they rose their game and ran out deserving winners in the end on a score line of 3-09 to 1-09.

Our performance in the second half was notable for some quality point taking against the wind in darkening and greasy conditions.

Well done to the players and management.
