James was one of the greatest Gaels I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The difference he made to every aspect of life at Tír na nÓg in recent years is out of this world and there wasn’t a single person in the club whose life wasn’t enhanced in some way by James. He was my star pupil at the club’s Irish classes and always had us laughing. James was a gentleman through and through and left a huge mark on every club, team and community he was involved with. Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann. Mo chomhbhrón ó chroí le Clann Mhic an Bheatha. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal Gaelach.
