Senior Hurling:
We are fixed to play Roscrea away on Sunday 16th July at 12pm in our final county league group fixture. This is a must win game for us to advance in this competition.

Junior A Hurling:


Our Junior A hurlers qualified for the North Junior A league final by beating Nenagh on Wednesday evening last 1-15 to 0-11. Unfortunately though were beaten by a very efficient Toomevara outfit in the North league final on Sunday last. 4-18 to 2-14.

We left ourselves too much work to do against the wind in the second half but fair play to our lads they never gave up and stayed battling to the end. 

Congratulations to Toome on a fine display.

We will begin our North championship campaign against Nenagh on the weekend of July 8th. See the Guardian fixtures and the clubs social media for further fixture information.

U10 Hurling:


Our u10’s played a good tough challenge match against Kiladangan GAA in Kilcoleman on Tuesday last. Well done to both teams for putting in a fine full blooded display of hurling. 

U12 Hurling:

Our U12 Hurlers played Borrisokane in the last round group game in Borrisokane on Friday evening. Burgess played the first half against a strong breeze we went in at half time with the score 4 points a piece. 

In the second half 2 quick Borrisokane goals put us under immense pressure but we kept the score board ticking over with points until we hit the net to go 1 point up. But on the puck out Borrisokane responded with a goal of their own. Again the lads battled on and levelled it with 2 well worked points to square it up. Then a well worked goal in the last minute put us 3 points up. But again, with the last puck of the game Borrisokane responded with a goal off their own to level it up.
FT Score

Burgess 2-10 

Borrisokane 4-4. 

That leaves us top of the table and unbeaten in the group stages and should guarantee us a home semi spot. This team has again showed us great heart and their never say die attitude. Even when the chips were down they battled away to very nearly take the win. A Great little team !! Well done
