Well done to our Junior’s who beat Knockshegowna handily on Saturday last in the North League in Kilcolman on a final scoreline of Burgess 3-13 Knockshe 0-11.

U14 Football:

Well done to our u14 footballers who booked their berth in the North u14 ‘A’ football final against Silvermines after a brilliant performance tonight! Well done to the lads over them. There was great battling done to hang in there and power through at the end. Another North Final!
Burgess 1-8 Ballina 0-8

U16 Football:

Hard luck to the U16s 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.

Senior Hurling:

Our next county game will be against Mullinahone on Saturday May 27th at 2pm in Templemore.

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 cameras.

There was no winner of last Monday night’s Club Lotto jackpot. The numbers drawn were 7, 12, 21 & 24.

Burgess had things well under control for the 1st quarter of an hour of this game with a lead of 1-5 to 0-2. The Burgess scores coming from Bill O’Flaherty, Stephen Murray, Eoin Hogan and Danny Ryan. Ryan goaled after collecting a break from a long range John O’Dwyer free and his finish was the definition of clinical. Stephen Murray caught the eye too with a point from a monstrous side line cut. Brackens to their credit launched a comeback after being stung by the concession of the goal and hit three on the trot to leave just a goal between the teams with 25 minutes gone.  That however was a close as Brackens would get as three more Burgess point’s courtesy of Stephen Murray and Keith Nealon left the half time score Burgess 1-8 JK Brackens 0-9.

Burgess got off to a blistering start to the second half and stretched their lead to 2-9 to 0-6 within a couple of minutes of the restart. Murray was first to register with a point followed by Eoin Leahy Hogan who bagged the goal with an expertly placed shot past the Brackens keeper. Five minutes later Burgess heaped on more misery for Brackens through Bill O’Flaherty who also found the net. Brackens tried hard but just couldn’t unlock the Burgess defence. They even had a penalty rebound off the upright only to be cleared down the field. Burgess ran out comfortable winners in the end with a final score line of Burgess 3-13 JK Brackens 0-9.

Burgess scorers: Bill O’Fllaherty 1-1, Stephen Murray 0-7(2f), Eoin Hogan 1-1, Danny Ryan 1-2, Keith Nealon 0-1
