Burgess GAA Notes 27th February 2017

Senior Hurling:


Our senior hurlers had a very useful challenge match against Upperchurch Drombane in Templederry on Sunday last. The neutral was necessary because of the car rally prevented access to Kilcoleman for most of the day. The match, played in horrible weather, will hopefully stand to our lads as they begin their league campaign in a reprise of last year’s league opener with a home fixture against neighbours Ballina on Sunday March 12th at 12pm. We wish our lads the best of luck and invite all of our supporters to come out and cheer on our lads in their first competitive game of the year.

Some recent Challange match footage:

North Draw details:

U21b: This year we find ourselves in a group with Ballina and Portroe with our opening game against Ballina. All fixture detail to be confirmed later in the year.

Burgess Notes 13th February 2017

Condolences:

The club extends its deepest sympathies to the Cooney family for the loss of Ryan who passed away tragically in the U.S. May he rest in peace.

Senior Hurling:

The final piece of fixture news was revealed at the north board meeting last week when we were drawn against our near neighbours Portroe in the first game of the still Knockout North championship. Portroe, as we all remember put an end to our senior hurling year in 2015 when they beat us in the North championship thus completing a miserable run of losses.

Meanwhile to our senior hurlers completed the Mayhem obstacle course in Cahir at the weekend to set the tone for the coming year. There are plenty of photo’s of the lads efforts shared to club facebook account for anyone interested. We would also like to say well done to Donagh Maher who starred in Tipperary’s highly impressive defeat of Dublin in Saturday evenings National Hurling League opener in Croke Park.
