* What a weekendof momentous sporting feats! The Lions win Down Under, Andy Murray winsWimbledon, Senior Ladies beat Senior Footballers, Irishman Dan Martin winsSunday’s stage in the Tour De France and Graeme McDowell wins the French OpenGolf. I will just go back a few lines. Senior ladies beat senior footballers!You had to be there. Well late on Saturday Night at the Family Fortunes Night inthe Club it was a complete whitewash. The smart thinking ladies won easily! Itis very clear they watch more TV, goes out more often, socialise in strangeplaces and only know one famous Castlewellan footballer who is female! The maleintelligence and intellect was clearly on holidays or elsewhere. Well done toall the contestants who were willing to step up and give everyone there a goodlaugh on what was a very enjoyable night. The show was preceded by a barbequewhere the food was excellent. Thank you to, PJ, Ollie and Brian for all theirwork and to Moira who apart from eating all the sausages did a lot of cleaningup. Thank you to all who made it such a good night.

* Good luck to theDown Ladies who meet Fermanagh in the Ladies Intermediate Ulster Football Finalon this Sunday. This is the first time in 14 years that Down Ladies havereached an Ulster Final. We will be represented on the squad by Orla Boyle, KylaTrainor and Lisa Morgan. We wish them all well. 

* The Seniorladies Footballers are through to the next round of the Senior Championshipwith an overwhelming victory over Burren in a really wet last Tuesday night inSt Malachy’s Park. They dominate the game from start to finish. The ladies werewell supported and thank you to all who came out to see the game.

*The Senior Footballers won in a hard fought battle against Annaclone who wewill meet in the first round of the championship. Having shipped a heavy defeatto Burren the previous weekend Annaclone did not want a repetition of that gameand set a puzzle which was difficult to break. As stated before Annaclone havemade Gaelic Park a fortress. The lads held their concentration well to see thegame out and win by three points. They will know that an better performancewill be required for the next game at home to Saval.
