#298 Massive Wellington Sevens up and running

Bigger and better can often be an overused term but in the case of this year’s Wellington Mixed Summer 7s in Gaelic football, the description fits perfectly.

On Wednesday, Wellington GAA in New Zealand put on a brilliant show for the promotion of football as Week 1 of their Summer Mixed 7s competition drew a record 16 teams to the pre Christmas event at Ian Galloway Park.

The event was supposed to begin the prior week but unfortunately it got rained-out except for two games on Thursday last, which, will see fixtures also this year.

We had some exotic names for the mixed seven’s last year and this time around is no different with several catching the eye such as Team Smash, Murphy’s Law 7pm, The King’s Army, Wheelbarrow Wheelers, Webb Ellis, an all Kiwi affair of course, and, wait for it….. Marty Morrissey!

This week the action began in earnest with no less than six matches during the week at Galloway Park and back once more to give us a run down on the games is Wellington GAA President, Donal Kavanagh.

New this year we hope to have a regular guest from Wellington on the programme each week and today, Donal’s Kerry comrade, Brian O’Sullivan Darcy, fresh out from Ireland, joins the conversation.
