Burgess GAA Notes 8th May 2017

Senior Hurling:


Well done to our seniors who had a comprehensive 1-21 to 0-10 win in the north championship on Sunday last. This win was especially impressive considering to amount of players that were unavailable. We would like to congratulate on of those unavailable players, Niall McGrath, who took off out foreign to get engaged at the weekend.
Our next county game will be against Mullinahone on Saturday May 27th at 2pm in Templemore.

Junior A Hurling:
Our juniors will take on Knockshegowna on Saturday May 13th in Kilcolman at 6.30pm in the North League. This has been changed from the advertised 7pm to 6.30pm.
u16 Football:
Hard luck to the U16s tonight who went down fighting against a strong Ballina team in the North Final. Great rally in the second half to respond to those Ballina goals. Another well turned out team from Burgess. They are a great credit to the parish and the lads over them.
Congratulations & best of luck to the Ballina GAA lads in the county championship.

Darkness into Light:


Well done all who were part of the Burgess GAA team who volunteered to stewards at this years Darkness into Light. It was fantastic and worthwhile event.
Our u10’s took park in a football blitz in Dr Morris park on Saturday last where they had three games. The boys had a great time, well done to all.
Thursday night Cards:
The 45 on Thursdays will take a break for the Summer and return in September. This has been a huge success – thanks to all who organised and attended.
Schools Camogie:


Well done to our girls on the Burgess NS U/11 team. After winning all their games last week they are now through to the county final in Thurles! Best of luck to all.
Representative Hurling:
Well done to Stephen Kirwan who was part of the North Tipp team who beat North Clare last week.
Walking Group:
The Walking Group will meet as usual at 7pm this Thursday in Kilcolman and travel on to Coum for a hill walk. Again, all are welcome.
Striking Video:
With our minor and underage hurlers in mind we have created this instructional video on striking (the ball!). We would urge all of our players and their parents alike to take a look at the footage and take on board some the tips shown.
And who better to demonstrate striking but current senior hurler and one of the best strikers of the ball you’re likely see, our very own Stephen Murray.
We would like to thank Declan Kirwan, whose brainchild this project this is, for his vision and for putting the work into producing this video. We would also like to thank Fergal McDonnell for his input and for doing such a professional job with the editing. Finally thanks to Stephen Murray and Stephen Kirwan who did so well in front of the
