Burgess GAA Notes 16th June 2014

Senior Hurling:

No quarter asked

Burgess are through to the Dr. Fogarty cup senior league final for the second consecutive year  thanks to our 0-12 to 0-9 victory over Ballingarry at the weekend. A short match report can be found on the club website.

The team that lined out was: Niall McGrath, John O’Dwyer, Johny Mulqueen, Jack O’Flaherty, Shane Maher, Donagh Maher, Paddy Hogan (0-1), Mike O’Flaherty, Danny Ryan, Damien O’Brien (0-3), Pater Gill (0-1)l, Noel Gleeson, Eoin Hogan, Brian Hogan, Stephan Murray (0-7 3f 1 ’65). Subs used: Conor Gill, Tadgh O’Halloran, John O’Brien.

We now face Clonoulty-Rossmore in the final of this competition at a date to be confirmed. We will face Moneygall in the quarter final of the North senior championship also at a date to be confirmed.


Borrisoleigh hosted our under 12s in the 3rd round off the championship on Friday evening. Burgess got off to a flying start with a goal from Jason Quigley and a point from Cormac McCauliffe. Borrisoleigh responded well with a goal and a point of their own to level things up. Keifer O Brien was next on the score board with a goal. Borrisoleigh scored point to leave the half time score 2-1 to 1-2 in favour off Burgess. Borrisoleigh were out of the blocks quick in second half scoring a goal and five points before Burgess responded with Daire Hogan and Eoin Grace scoring a point each. In the final 10 minutes it was attack after attack from Burgess but the Borrisoleigh defence held solid and could not be breached leaving the final score 2-7 to 2-3 in favour of Borrisoleigh. Lorrha are up next in Kilcolman next Friday evening at 6.30 all support greatly appreciated.


Hard luck to our U14 team who were beaten by a much stronger Borrisoleigh team on Wednesday evening in Kilcolman.
