Kilcolman hosted an u17 seven-a-side blitz on Saturday. It was a useful run out for our non exam-bound hurlers. We would like to thank Nenagh Éire Óg, Kilruane McDonaghs and Newport for attending. Thanks also to the clubs three ref’s Pat Gibson, Peter Carroll and Garrett Howard for officiating abd all who helped out on the day.

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.

Club Lotto:

There was no winner of last Monday nights jackpot. The numbers drawn were 7, 10, 13 & 30. The lucky dip winners were Carragh Cooney Newtown, Rena Ryan Ballyhiskey & Sally Kearns Kilcolman. Sellers prize Mairead Darcy. Next weeks draw is in Reidy’s. Jackpot €4,050.

Well done to our Junior’s who beat Knockshegowna handily on Saturday last in the North League in Kilcolman on a final scoreline of Burgess 3-13 Knockshe 0-11.

U14 Football:

Well done to our u14 footballers who booked their berth in the North u14 ‘A’ football final against Silvermines after a brilliant performance tonight! Well done to the lads over them. There was great battling done to hang in there and power through at the end. Another North Final!
Burgess 1-8 Ballina 0-8

U16 Football:

Hard luck to the U16s who went down fighting against a strong Ballina team in the North Final. Great rally in the second half to respond to those Ballina goals. Another well turned out team from Burgess. They are a great credit to the parish and the lads over them.
Congratulations & best of luck to the Ballina GAA lads in the county championship.

Senior Hurling:

Our next county game will be against Mullinahone on Saturday May 27th at 2pm in Templemore.

Striking Video:



 

With our minor and underage hurlers in mind we have created this instructional video on striking (the ball!). We would urge all of our players and their parents alike to take a look at the footage and take on board some the tips shown.
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.

Club Lotto:

There was no winner of last Monday night’s Club Lotto jackpot. The numbers drawn were 7, 12, 21 & 24. The three lucky dip winners were Mike Keane Castlecranna, Aileen Howard Newtown & Kat Cooney Garranmore. The sellers prize went to Marian Carroll. This weeks draw was in Reidy’s for a Jackpot of €3,600.

 

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.

U12 Football:
