Junior A hurling:

Our juniors got themselves into the knockout phase of the north league after an absorbing dogfight in Newport at the weekend. We were up against it at half time after Newport made the most of home advantage and a stiff breeze to go in with a 1-11 to 0-8 lead. John O’Briens accuracy from placed balls was all that was keeping us in touch.

A string of bad wides early in the second half didn’t bode well but our troops but our lads upped the ante and a Ronan Tucker goal set the game up for an exciting finish. After a break in play for a nasty injury inflicted on David Seymour our boys rallied to the cause and lead for the first time in the game when it mattered most. Peter Gill was the hero with the winning score three minutes into injury time , Burgess 1-16 Newport 1-15.

Burgess 0-21 Kilruane 1-18 county senior league Match report

Kilruane made a blistering start to the game firing over three unanswered points in the first three minutes of the game against a stiff breeze. By the 15 minute mark Burgess trailed 6 points to 4. The Burgess scores coming from Brian Hogan, Ben Cooney and Eoin Leahy Hogan. The Burgess recovery continued in an entertaining and high scoring half which ended with the sides level at 11 points each. Kilruane though were lively in attack and forced two good saves from Niall McGrath in the Burgess goals.

The second half mirrored the first with four unanswered points in three minutes against the breeze. Eoin Tossy Hogan had a goal bound shot deflected over the bar to put Burgess 3 points up 17 to 14 on the twelfth minute only for his name sake on the opposite team to level the game with a cracking goal at the other end two minutes later. It was nip and tuck for the remainder of the game with Kilruane salvaging a draw with a pointed injury time free, the final score Burgess 0-21 Kilruane 1-18.

An entertaining game with plenty of scores and drama and great debut for two new faces on the Burgess senior team, minors Ben Cooney and Stephen Kirwan, both of whom got their names on the scoresheet with well taken points. Well done lads!

Team: Niall McGrath, Paddy Hogan, Shane Maher, Drew Boland, Noel Gleeson, Jack O’Flaherty, Johnny Mulqueen, Willie Ryan, Conor Gill, Brian Hogan (0-3), Keith Nealon, Eoin Tossy Hogan (0-1), Eoin Leahy Hogan (0-15 9f, 1’65, 1SL) Ben Cooney (0-1), Stephen Kirwan (0-1), Subs used: Tadhg O’Halloran, Danny Ryan, Tony Hogan.

Burgess GAA Notes 3rd July 2017

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
