What you like most about St. James’ GAA club: The craic with the team mates and great development of facilities in recent years.

Favourite St. James’ GAA Supporter: Marguerite O’ Driscoll can always spot the right pass to make, usually to James or Shane. Super, rolling down the hill in Ballinacarriga.  John John's hand shake is inspiring, Donal Sheehan Junior always has a positive comment to make after the match, and Sonny Nyhan attended every single under age game I ever played with a pair of binoculars.
