Hard luck to our senior team who were defeated by Corofin in Pearse Stadium last weekend. This championship game was doubled up with the Division 1 league final of 2017. The final score resulted St. James’ 1-8 Corofin 0-15. The Jimmies were without key players due to injury and notably Paul Conroy, Johnny Duane and Josh MacFarlane. Nevertheless, James’ showed good character and defended/attacked extremely well against the All-Ireland champions. In the end we failed to win the game but the club are very proud of their performance and look forward to play Annaghdown in the Quarter finals of the senior championship. Pictured is James’ ‘Danger Man’ Eoin Concannon who added a tally of 1-3. Well done to the James’ minors who defeated Killannin 0-13 0-9 last weekend in the second round of the championship. The Jimmies face Carraoe in the final group game of the championship. A win would secure the Jimmies in their first West Board minor championship final since 2012. The St. James’ U-14 team and management will play Claregalway this Sunday in Mervue at 6pm in Mervue. The club would encourage everyone to attend this game as support the Jimmies. The winner will advance to the County Championship A final. Meanwhile, the James’ U-12s are due to play Kinvara in the a playoff to reach the county B final. Details of this game will be posted on social media and the club website stjamesgaa.ie. The St. James’ senior ladies team will play Tuam/Cortoon in the Intermediate County Championship semi-final this Sunday @4pm in Mountbellew. This is the firs time ever that the club has ever reached this stage of the competition. The club would like to wish them the very best of luck in this epic tie. Everybody at the club would encourage all supporters, coaches and committee members to attend. On Saturday it was big day for the girls Juvenile section playing at the highest level in just 5 years (county A championship final). The girls fell short in the final to Oranmore-Maree and both teams can be extremely proud of their performances. The club would like to thank manager Colin Murphy and selector Aoife Concannon for their efforts all year. This team captured the county league back in July and reached the championship final for the first time ever in the clubs history. All at the club are very proud of their achievements.
