* Sevens Football has always been a part of the Castlewellan GAA fabric. Last weekend with no league football due to County commitments the senior lads were involved in 2 competitions. On Saturday our neighbours St John’s Drumnaquoile held The John McMullan Memorial Cup Sevens. John who was a playing member of the Johnnies passed away tragically 4 years ago as a result of a road accident. It was a great tournament with eight teams from Down and one team from Scotland competing for the Shield and the Cup. The lads won the tournament with Fintan McGreevy winning player of the Tournament. Well done to Sean McVeigh, Brian McVeigh, Caolam Corrigan, David Gilmore, Aidan Burns, Fintan McGreevy, Matthew Stratton, Donal McKibben, Niall McKibben and Rory Burns. Thank you to the St Johns’ club for what was a wonderful afternoon’s football and thank you for having us. On Sunday The lads qualified for the Feis Sevens Final to be held on Sunday 26 May 2013.
