It was a very busy weekend for the St. James’ club. On Friday night the St. James’ U-14 team and management took on Claregalway in the County A Championship. The Jimmies emerged convincing winners from this tie. In addition, John Melody and his management team can be very happy with this performance and result. On Saturday morning St. James’ hosted Salthill Knocknacarra in Mervue. The Jimmies U-8 & U-10 teams played Go-Games against skgaa. A great morning was had by all and the drinks/food was well received by all afterwards. Meanwhile, the St. James’Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps took place last week in Mervue. Up to 100 children took part and this was a very successful camp. Many thanks to Club & County stars Paul Conroy and Tom Fylnn for visiting all the children at St. James’ camp. Both players shared some valuable information to the kids about Gaelic games. Furthermore, they signed autographs, took photos and demonstrated the kick pass to perfection. Everyone from the club wished Paul and Tom the best of luck this Sunday against the Rossies. The camps this year have been a huge success and a lot of new players signed up. Again thanks to club star Paul and also his Galway teammate Tom Fylnn for taking time out of their busy schedules. The Connacht SFC Final Preview 2017 — Galway v Roscommon — was broadcasted live on Galway Bay FM in Memory of Darragh Frain on Saturday night in Crowe’s Bar. That night the launch of The Darragh Frain Memorial Cup, sponsored by Aidan Brady of Club Rossie took place. Special Guests included legends from both the Galway GAA, Roscommon GAA and St. James’ GAA – Galway teams, hosted by Ollie Turner. On Saturday afternoon friends of Darragh from G.A.A. circles in Galway and Roscommon organised an exhibition game in Mervue to mark Darragh’s untimely passing. It was a major success and the game was a joy to watch. Finally hard luck to Paul Conroy and the Galway senior team and management .Roscommon defeated Galway on Sunday in Pearse Stadium in the Connacht senior football final. All at St. James’ would encourage all members of the GAA in Galway to get behind the team for their next outing against Donegal in a few weeks time.
