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.

Senior Hurling

Our senior hurlers bowed out of the county championship to Borrisoleigh on Saturday evening last. We were 10 points down at half time with things looking bleak but the lads mounted a fearsome comeback in the second half which saw us netting four goals.

It wasn’t enough on the night however and we were eventually beaten 4-12 to 1-25.

We would like to thank both the players and management for their efforts in the championship this year and we wish them the best of luck in the county League final replay against Eire Og Nenagh Saturday 14th August in Toomevara at 4:30pm.
