Our u21’s travelled to Shallee on Sunday morning last and recorded a fine 0-18 to 0-12 win over Ballina. We hurled against the wind in slippery conditions our lads laid the foundations for the win with a great first half defensive performance. Well done lads.

Burgess gaa notes August 21st 2017

Senior Hurling:
Our senior hurlers await news on their relegation fixtures. With Kiladangan eliminated from the North at the weekend and after Carrick Swans win in the south the structure of the play off is still unknown and unknowable at this point. Keep an eye on the clubs social media for more information as it arises.
Dermot Hogan Memorial Tournament:


Despite heavy persistent rain a fine crowd of Burgess and Coolderry Gaels assembled in Kilcolman on Saturday last as the minor & senior hurlers of Burgess and Coolderry played out two enthralling exhibition games. In the first game the Coolderry minors proved too strong for a depleted Burgess side and ran out 3-15 to 2-12 winners. This game was remarkable for the quality of score taken by both sides despite the torrential rain. There are some team and action photos from the game on the club facebook page.

The senior game was a more low scoring affair as the underfoot conditions deteriated further . Coolderry took a 2 point lead in at half time leading 0-5 to 0-7 but Burgess cancelled that lead within about two minutes of the restart and lead for the majority of the half but a late rally and a goal by Coolderry saw them snatch the win with the final score reading Burgess 0-13 Coolderry 1-13.

Afterwards refreshments were served for players and supporters in the hall and the Hogan family presented commemorative trophies to the captains of all four teams.

We would like to wish our friends in Coolderry the best of luck in the KNOCKOUT PHASE OF THE Offaly county championship and thank them for making the trip down to visit us.

U16 Hurling:


Burgess U16 played Borrisokane in round 3 of the north championship on Tuesday last at 7pm in Kilcoleman. In what was a keenly contested game with only a puck of the ball separating the teams throughout. Borrisokane lead by 2 points at half time. The game continued in the same vain for the second half with both teams fighting for every possession and score. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be Burgess day as we went down by 3 points on a final score line of Burgess 2-07, Borrisokane 1-13. Burgess can be proud of their work rate and this was their best performance so far.

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.

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

Well done to our ‘Green’ 12 Hurlers who kicked off the championship with a win over Kiladangan 1-7 to 2-2 on Friday evening.
In a tight game they fought from 2pts down in the last 10min to scored 1-4 without reply and go 5 up. A late Kiladangan goal left for a trilling finish. Our lads held out for the 2pt win.
Hard luck to our ‘Gold’  team who were beaten by a strong Kiladangan side. We did well to finish with 2 good goals but Kiladangan were just too good on the night.

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.
