Burgess grab dramatic draw

Burgess 2-13 Borris-Ileigh 1-16

27th April 2014 McDonagh Park Nenagh,

Against a strong Breeze in the first half Burgess were first on the attack with a fine point from play by Eoin Leahy Hogan straight from the throw in. Borris were back level however within a minute with a point of their own from a free by David O’Connor. After seven minutes of hurling the teams were level at four points each, the remaining Burgess scores coming from Stephan Murray 0-2 (1 f) and a whopper against the wind by Noel Gleeson. Borris benefitted from the ref whistle with David O’Connor firing over another two frees before Dan McCormack had Borris’s first point from play.

Two minutes later David O’Connor caught a high ball and raced inside the Burgess defence to put Borris a goal ahead. Borris then had two more scores, a long range pointed free from Brendan Maher and fine point from play by Dan McCormack which put them five points ahead, 1-6 to 0-4. Stephan Murray broke the Borris scoring sequence with a sublime point from a line ball into the wind. Conor Kenny and Noel Gleeson exchanged points from play before David O’Connor pointed a free, Borris’s fifth such score of the half, to send the sides in with Borris leading 1-8 to 0-6.

Burgess had done well to be only five points behind at half time and were unlucky not to have a blatant penalty awarded to them when Damien O’Brien was hauled down attacking the Borris goal.2

Burgess again had an early score after the throw in when Stephan Murray pointed a rare scoreable free to leave Burgess 4 points adrift, 1-8 to 0-7. Borris responded quickly with a free by Brendan Maher and an excellent point by Matthew Stapleton immediately upon his introduction. A point by Burgess captain Damien O’Brien and free by Murray had the deficit by to four points with ten minutes gone in the half. Another pointed free by Brendan Maher and two excellent points from the wing by the impressive substitute Matthew Stapleton stretched out Borris’s lead to seven points.

A bullet of a 21 metre free from Stephen Murray gave the Burgess faithful a glimmer of hope on the 45th minute but Borris once again responded quickly with yet another pointed free by Brendan Maher and a point from play by Tipperary senior star Conor Kenny to make the score 1-9 to 1-15.

Burgess then embarked on a stirring 8 minute rampage scoring 1-3 without reply, the goal by Brian Hogan who made up for an earlier shot which he blasted over the bar for a wide from close range!. The three points, all from play were scored by Tossy, Murray and O’Brien respectively.

All this excitement made for a Grandstand finish with the teams tied, Burgess 2-12 Borris 1-15 with the clock reading sixty minutes. What followed was frenetic action with both sides fluffing chances of grabbing a winner before the outstanding Dan McCormack shot a monster point to give Borris the lead on 63 minutes. But Burgess weren’t done, cometh the hour and cometh the man. With time almost up Donagh Maher came raiding forward from centre back and pilfered the ball from a ruck of players and from an acute angle levelled the game in the fourth minute of injury time.

The 2-13 to 1-16 draw was the least Burgess deserved for their gutsy display and all of this means that a draw or win from our final game against the already qualified Drom&Inch will see us advance in the competition.

Burgess GAA notes 28th April 2014

Senior Hurling: Well done to our senior  hurlers who against the odds dragged a richly deserved draw from their county championship tie against Borrisoleigh in McDonagh Park Nenagh. Junior A hurling: Our Junior A hurlers face the might of Knockshegowna in the North Junior A league on Friday night coming in Kilcolman at 7:30.

u12 football:

Well done to the Burgess under 12 football who beat Ballinahinch in a hard fought game on Friday evening. Ballinahinch started the stronger putting 2 points on the board in the opening 10 mins. Then a great point from Jason Quigley and a goal from Cormac Mc Auliff put Burgess in front but Ballinahinch responded well with a goal and a point to finish the half leading 1-3 to 1-1.
The second half was all burgess. A goal midway by Aaron Sharkey was to be the only score in the second half by either team. Finishing Burgess 2-1 Ballinahinch 1-3. A great win from a very resilient Burgess team with a never say die attitude. Burgess now through to the North Final against Lorrha on Friday week. Well Done to all involved. 

Well done: Congratulations to Jack O Keefee who received an award from Pat O Flaherty for winning 2013 all Ireland last Friday night at the handball presentation evening in Kilcoleman. Last Man Standing: We are now down to the last four in the clubs last man standing competition in support of the Senior hurlers training fund.

Burgess v Moneygall 18th April in Moneygall Junior A Hurling League

After an even opening twenty minutes of hurling Burgess lead Moneygall by only a point with the score 0-5 to 0-4. The Burgess scores to this point coming from Tadgh O’Halloran bagging an impressive 0-3 with a point each for Tony Gleeson and Keith Nealon.

Burgess went on to dominate the remainder of the half with more scores coming from Nealon, Garrett Howard, Paidi Gill and Johnny Ryan.  The late concession of a goal a minute into injury time left the half time score Burgess 0-11 Moneygall 1-6.

The opening twenty minutes of the second half saw a dominant Burgess race into a 0-18 to 1-08 lead with Keith Nealon doing most of the damage from placed balls and Paidi Gill firing over a fine point from play.

With thirty minutes of the second half elapsed Burgess looked home and hosed leading by six points 0-20 to 1-11 when Moneygall to their credit launched a remarkable injury time comeback with two lightening goals to square up the game 0-20 to 3-11. Burgess however, had a trump card to play in the shape of the evergreen Colm O’Brien who was quickest to react and snatched the winning goal in the 34th minute of the second half to give Burgess their second away win of the league.

We would urge everyone to support North Tipp Leader Project http://www.ntlp.ie/ in its fight for survival in the face of Government cuts and “Alignment” measures.

Without the NTPL help the Kilcolman Community Recreation & Development Society Centre would never have been the success that it now is and would quiet possibly have never gotten off the ground. A short video of the speeches on the night can be viewed on the clubs YouTube channel http://youtu.be/EiFlubfAqs4 where the official blessing and speeches by Pat Cremin and  North Tipp leaders Ronan Gleeson are recorded. We would encourage everyone to do their upmost to support the NTLP especially at election time.

Burgess beat the Mines

Burgess v Silvermines County Senior hurling championship 13th April 2014

With the aid of a stiff breeze Silvermines had raced into a 0-2 to 0-0 lead before Stephen Murray opened the Burgess account with a well taken point from play on fourth minute. After two more points for the Mines Stephen Murray was on hand again to point a free to make the score 0-2 to 0-4 with eight minutes elapsed. After nineteen minutes on the clock the score read Burgess 0-5 Silvermines 0-9 the Burgess scores coming by way of two more frees from Murray and an excellent point from play by Danny Ryan.

We then hit a pre-halftime purple patch firing over six points without reply into the wind. The scorers were Murray, Peter Gill, Eoin Tossy Hogan and Noel Gleeson. All of which sent us in with a healthy 0-11 to 0-9 half time lead.

The second half began with us firing an incredible three wide’s within the first minute and a half. The mines were less wasteful however and had the game level at eleven points each after three minutes. Points by Murray and Leahy had us holding a two point lead when disaster struck, a saved Jason Forde 21 metre free was somehow scrambled home to give the Silvermines an unlikely one point lead, 1-11 to 0-13. The mines lead was short lived thankfully, with scores from Donagh Maher, Stephen Murray and a fantastic brace inside a minute from Danny Ryan restoring the Burgess lead.

Silvermines only managed two more scores for the half while Burgess continued to tack on the points with further scores from Murray, Noel Gleeson, Leahy and an absolute beaut from the side-line by Brian Hogan to leave the final score Burgess 0-21 Silvermines 1-13.

Team : Niall McGrath, Jack O’Flaherty, Johnny Mulqueen, Mike O’Flaherty, Shane Maher, Donagh Maher, Conor Quigley, Daniel Ryan, Peter Gill, Damien O’Brien, Brian Hogan, Noel Gleeson, Eoin Hogan, Eoin Tossy Hogan, Stephen Murray, Subs used: John O’Dwyer, Bill O’Flaherty.

An examination of goals scored in the 2013 Senior Hurling Championship

Luke Lonergan

Scoring in the magical game of hurling comes via two means. One point is awarded for when the sliothar passes through the uprights. Three points are given when the sliothar gets past the goalkeeper and below the crossbar. The 2013 All-Ireland Championship was a thrilling affair all season and during that time sixty-seven goals were registered. Here’s a detailed analysis of those goals where teams goals are examined on provincial grounds all the way up to the exciting All-Ireland clashes.
