Last Saturday morning the St. James’ welcomed Corofin GAA U8 teams to Mervue. An excellent morning of Gaelic games was on display. The U15 team came to the Academy and spoke to all the young Jimmies about their final last weekend. Many thanks to the lads who spent time with all the kids, refereed games and posed for pictures. That same morning, the James’ U9 teams travelled to Oranmore and played out a series of Go-Games against Oranmore-Maree. Overall an excellent and productive workout for all the Jimmies teams.

Saturday evening marked the 3rd year of the Annual Darragh Frain Memorial Match between GMIT and St. James’. It was an excellent evening for Gaelic games and everyone enjoyed the occasion. Many thanks to Colin Canny for organizing the match once again and the club would like to thank everyone that lined out for both teams, the frain family and supporters for making the day a special occasion. The U15/16 team & management went for breakfast in Delight on Saturday morning . Owner Kevin Nugent and his team kindly sponsored the U15 team a brand new set of training jerseys and an official kit for their final vs Killannin which took place last weekend. Many thanks to Kevin and Steph for their kind generosity and contribution.

Well done to the St. James’ U12 team & management who had a comprehensive win over city rivals Salthill-Knocknacarra in the City ‘A’ League at Mervue last Sunday evening. The Jimmies have one remaining game left in this league and they will face Barna. The game is scheduled for this Sunday in Barna but a time has yet to be confirmed. The Annual St. James’ Inter-School Blitz was played on Tuesday morning in Mervue. It was an action packed morning of Gaelic games and Briarhill National School defeated St. Michael’s Mervue in this years final. St, James’ had many representatives on all the teams and including Briarhill captain Sean Fylnn. Con O’Donovan presented the shield to Sean Fylnn after the tournament and this was the school’s second year winning the tournament. Many thanks to all club members who helped organize the annual blitz and well done to all the players and teachers who represented their school on the day. We look forward to celebrating the tenth year of this tournament in 2020.
