Burgess Gaa Notes 8th October 2018

Tribute Night:

We held a long overdue and richly deserved tribute night to honour the great Donie Nealon on Friday last. Comrades from the great Tipp team of the 60’s that Donie soldiered with along with rivals from that era were in attendance along with representative of the ’71, ’89 and ’91 teams that DonIe mentored. His service to the Munster council was also marked with colleagues from his time there also speaking. All in all it was a marvellous night filled with great stories and fun. A DVD will be available from Jim Egan for a cost of €10 fir those who couldn’t make it and anyone who’d like a memento of the night. We would especially like to thank John Hogan and his committee for their (covert) hard work in organising this great night in honour of Donie. Special mention too to Sinead and Nuala Nealon who managed to make the whole night a surprise for Donie and all the guests from near and far who came for Donie’s special night.

The Chaser:

Tickets for THE CHASER are now available, family tickets €50 single €20. It promises to be a great night for all the family. Tickets available from David Kyne or Nicola Sharkey . Please support this event. Thank you.

Well done tour senior hurlers who survived a Templederry second half comeback and regain senior roinn 1 status after winning Saturdays Seamus O’Riain semi-final 2-17 to 2-14.
