Last Saturday the St. James’ club marked the third year of the annual Darragh Frain Memorial football tournament. 40 games of football was played, 7 hours it lasted and up to 500 people in attendance at Mervue. Congratulations to Claregalway (cup), St. James’ (shield) and Barna (plate) on winning their finals.  The club would like to extend it’s thanks to everyone on the day. This was by far the best year yet and we look forward to hosting this annual event well into the future.

Congratulations to club U16 player Matthew Mulvaney who lined out at wing back for the Galway Football U16 City/West team that captured the Shield Title last Friday night at Bekan. Galway defeated Mayo in a thrilling final 2-13 to 2-10. The club are extremely proud of Matthew’s achievements and the Mulvaney family. They are a credit to our club. Well done to the St. James’ U-14 team & management defeating Monivea Abbey in the county ‘B’ semi-final last Sunday evening. The Jimmies came from behind and turned a 11 point margin into a five point victory. An impressive comeback to say the least. The full time score resulted St. James’ 5-7 Monivea Abbey 2-11. Hard luck is extended to the Galway minor football team that were defeated by Cork in the Electric Ireland minor All-Ireland final. St. James’ are very proud to have Daniel McNulty and James Egan involved in the set up and we look forward to seeing them line out for the tribes again real soon. 

Finally, some fixtures to note this coming weekend. On Friday there is a double header in Mervue as our U16 team take on St. Michael’s in the ‘Battle of the Saints’ County A Championship playoff tie @6:30pm. Meanwhile the U-12 team take on Oranmore Maree in the A City League at 6:45pm. On Saturday morning the Jimmies host Padraig Pearse at Mervue in an U10 blitz at 11:30am. Our senior team take on Annaghdown on Sunday afternoon @3:45pm at Kenny Park in their final group game. The winner avoids a relegation battle.
