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.
