Keith Murphy of St. James’ G.A.A. club was recently appointed Keith as the National School Coaching Officer in October 2016. The action plan is to create and develop a link between St James’ GAA and the following schools in our catchment area. Although the club have developed links in the past and present, there are many other areas that need further enhancement. In 2016, St James’ recruited a vast number of players from Gael Scoil Dara, Scoil Chaitríona Renmore, St. Michael’s Mervue, Brierhill and Merlin Woods. Keith is at the helm of this new initiative and everyone at the club are positive about the action plan. The clubs aim is to promote St James’ in the National Schools to the best of its ability. Keith has recently completed his foundation and award 1 coaching degree. Furthermore, he has guided and worked with several underage teams at the St. James’ Academy. Not only has he worked with Juvenile teams but also with the St. James’ Ladies adult team. Murphy is looking forward to this new role and all at the club wish him the best of luck

A key aspect is how we look after and guide our players in the correct direction at all times and it is important that we have teachers like Alan Murphy and David Henry that work in the secondary schools, The Bish and St Mary’s College. It is important that we are aware that they are keeping our players focused in school and also on the football pitch.
