Burgess GAA Notes 17th April 2017

Junior A Hurling:
Our junior A’s were beaten by Toomevara in the North league on Saturday evening. We were short a lot of players and our cause wasn’t helped by the loss or Tadhg O’Halloran Toome put in a strong second half to run out deserving 0-16 to 2-6 winners. We had a bad day at the office where nothing seemed to go right. Hard luck lads.

Senior Hurling:

With Tipp playing the league final next weekend it looks like our championship opener v Killenaule will take place on Friday week. 

U14 Hurling:


Pride of the parish this week are our u14’s who completed the Feile double when they claimed the hurling crown at the weekend by beating Kiladangan 1-5 to 0-5. This was a fantastic achievement as we were very short on numbers over Easter and it was touch and go as to whether we would be able to field a team. The win was especially satisfying as the cup our lads brought home was a Burgess one, the Maher Twins memorial cup presented to the north board by the Maher families in memory of Jack and Denny Maher. We would also like wish u14 hurler Sean Fitzgerald all the best in his recovery after his injury last week.

Minor Hurling:


Our minors were well beaten by Portroe on Thursday last in their opening game of the championship. We were short a number of players were surprised that this fixture was made go ahead given our previous communications with Portroe and north board. 

U16 Football:

Well done to our U16 footballers whom defeated Newport on a score of 4-14 to 0-05 in Newport this evening. This was another step in the right direction with our work rate and teamwork top class. Our scoring was impressive with scores spread across the team. Our controlled agression has improved with a reduction in conceeding needless frees. We have now qualified for the semifinal with one game still to be played against Ballina. Thanks to Pat Gibson for supplying the match report.

Junior A Hurling:

North Tipp Junior A hurling League

Burgess 1-16 Templederry 1-10 – 1st April 2017 Templederry
Despite playing against a very strong breeze and and having to look into the low sun Burgess found themselves hurling well and enjoying a 0-4 to 0-2 lead after 10 minutes. Those scores coming by way of two Eoin Hogan frees and points from play by Conor Gill and John O’Brien. A melee, caused by some very indiscriminate pulling by a Templederry forward, resulted in both teams being reduced to 14 men. Points by Eoin and Paddy Hogan gave Burgess a slender 0-7 to 0-6 half time lead.

After eight minutes of the second half Burgess were motoring well having extended their lead to to five points, 1-9 to 0-7. The points coming from Eoin Hogan and the goal a low sun assisted Kieran Ryan long range free. After 13 minutes of the half the Burgess lead was looking even more comfortable with points from Eoin Hogan, Paddy Hogan and Johnny Ryan to leave Burgess 1-12 to 0-7 to the good. Templederry then struck with a fabulous goal to reduce the lead to just five points and continued to put Burgess under real pressure for the remainder of the game. Burgess finished strongly though with scores from Conor Gill and Eoin Hogan to run out 1-16 to 1-10 winners.

The Burgess Team: Paul Carroll, Lee Howard, Pat Woods, David Seymour, Tony Hogan, Kieran Ryan, Brian Tucker, Conor Gill, Johnny Ryan, Sean Flynn, Paddy Hogan, Aidan O’Flaherty, Andy Dunne, John O’Brien, Eoin Hogan. Subs Tadhg O’Halloran, Paudie Gill.

MATCH REPORT: Burgess 3-16 Lorrha 1-14 – county senior league 2017

Burgess 3-16 Lorrha 1-14

County Senior League 26th March 2017

After winning the toss Lorrha opted to play with a strong wind behind them in the first half andm they raced into a 2 point lead with three minutes played. Burgess initially struggled to cope with the strong breeze but a fantastic piece of individual skill by Stephen Murray after an excellent Tossy Hogan delivery gave Burgess a one point lead and the first goal of the game. Lorrha responded with two more points before Murray struck again with a pointed free.  It was nip and tuck thereafter as both sides exchanged points and by my reckoning and that of a fair few others in the field that Lorrha led 1-5 to 0-10 at half time. The referee however had the game a draw at half time. Burgess 1-6 Lorrha 0-9.

Burgess were first on the score board after four minutes of the second half when Eoin Leahy Hogans fine work under the dropping ball put Stephen Murray through for his second goal of the game. Fair dues to Lorrha who despite the goal and injury some setbacks fought back to gamely level the game with 15 minutes remaining but a third Burgess goal after some classy interplay finished by Eoin Tossy Hogan essentially decided the fixture with 12 minutes to play. Burgess finished the game strongly to run out 3-16 to 1-14 winners and claim their second victory of this league campaign.

Burgess scorers: Stephen Murray 2-5, Eoin Tossy Hogan 1-0, Shane Maher 0-1, Keith Nealon 0-2, Danny Ryan 0-4, Eoin Leahy Hogan 0-2, Willie Ryan 0-1.

Burgess Team: Niall McGrath, Pat Woods, Jack O’Flaherty, Paddy Hogan, Brian Hogan, John O’Dwyer, Willie Ryan, Conor Gill, Shane Maher, Eoin Tossy Hogan, Keith Nealon, John O’Brien, Danny Ryan, Stephen Murray, Eoin Leahy Hogan. Subs Used: Andy Dunne, Bill O’Flaherty.
