Burgess GAA Notes 14th August 2017

Senior Hurling:

We were defeated in our final group game of the county championship by Éire Óg Annacarty 2-20 to 1-17. This loss puts us into a four way relegation play off against Ballina, Carrick Swan and Kiladangan with two to go down. Kiladangan and Carrick Swan can escape relegation should they manage to win their divisional championships. We play Coolderry next week in Kilcolman in the Dermot Hogan Memorial tournament.

Juvenile clothes collection:


Burgess Juvenile Club are holding clothes collection on Saturday 26th August. Bags of clothes can be dropped to Kilcoleman any night during training between now and 26th August or bags can be dropped off to Derek Sharkey or Patricia Gibson.

Junior A hurling:

We play Borris-ileigh in the north championship Friday August 18th at 7pm in Kilcolman.

Minor Hurling:

Our minors were beaten by Clonakenny/Moneygall in the minor ‘B’ championship in Kilcolman on Friday last on a score line of Burgess 2-13 ClonaKenny/Moneygall 4-10. Hard luck lads, you put in a great effort.

U16 Hurling:


Burgess U16 played Borrisokane in round 3 of the north championship on Tuesday last at 7pm in Kilcoleman. In what was a keenly contested game with only a puck of the ball separating the teams throughout. Borrisokane lead by 2 points at half time. The game continued in the same vain for the second half with both teams fighting for every possession and score. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be Burgess day as we went down by 3 points on a final score line of Burgess 2-07, Borrisokane 1-13. Burgess can be proud of their work rate and this was their best performance so far.

U10 Hurling:

Our u10’s played a fantastic challenge against Roscrea on Saturday last. Thanks to Roscrea for coming up to us for the game. Plenty of stars for the future on show for both sides.
