John Humphrey Memorial Cup Fixtures


At its awards night on 4 December St James Gaels were delighted to welcome Dublin star Kevin Mc Manamon as their guest of honour.


On 27 and 28 December next the Dublin ace’s club mates from the St Jude’s Under 10 football team will be amongst the teams battling for glory at the home of St James Gaels.


Most Dubliners prepare for Christmas by shopping but down in the Iveagh Grounds St James Gaels prepare to have a feast of Christmas football.


Over the Christmas weekend the Gael’s home on the Crumlin Road will showcase the cream of under 10 talent in Dublin football in the annual John Humphrey memorial cup hosted by St James Gaels. The Gaels have organised over 20 Gaelic football fixtures in their annual competition.

Under 10 footballers from Bohernabreena, Foxrock, Whitehall, Crumlin, Castleknock, Marino, Templeogue, Kiltipper and Lucan will showcase their talents in Dublin football in the annual John Humphrey memorial cup hosted by St James Gaels.

The competition is held in memory of John Humphrey, a young St James Gaels player, who died tragically in 1998.

Generously sponsored by John’s family the tournament is a fitting tribute to the memory of a young boy for whom sport played such a major part in his short life.

Gaels Chairman Kevin Dunne describes the event as “the most special event in the club’s calendar.”

“The most important thing about this event is that everybody approaches it in a spirit that makes sport a winner.”

Fixture details are attached.

We hope to see you there.

Television will, no doubt, offer some form of sporting offerings on 27 and 28 December.

St James Gaels will offer sport in its truest sense - played for the thrill and enjoyment of participation, in the memory of a sports loving child, and in aid of the Children’s Hospital in Crumlin. Yes, you can watch television but why not join us in watching real sporting prowess in action.

With an impressive range of facilities in the Iveagh Grounds on the Crumlin Road St James Gaels welcomes anyone with an interest in Gaelic Football with open arms.

St James Gaels currently fields two men’s adult Gaelic football teams, a Ladies team and juvenile teams from Under 8 to Under 18 age levels for both boys and girls. In addition, for 5 to 8 year olds, we run our Gaels All-Stars Academy which introduces boys and girls to Gaelic football and hurling in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
