One of Sarsfield’s finest Jim “Bomber” Coleman was called to his eternal reward over the weekend. Jim will be forever remembered as the powerhouse midfielder on the Sars team that recorded our first County title victory in 1951. His swashbuckling, no-nonsense performances were a key factor in that never to be forgotten title winning season. Jim acted as selector in the 1957 title winning team.
Jim is pictured here leading his beloved Sarsfields into action with St. Finbarrs at a very countryfied Riverstown for the re-opening of the grounds in 1953. May he rest in peace.
