A very successful Wellington GAA Mens Gaelic Football Sevens series came to a thrilling conclusion on Sunday with two fantastic semi finals and a great final taking place at Ian Galloway Park, Wellington NZ.
The first semi final of the day sprang something of a surprise with the unfancied Luke’s Skywalkers out-goaling favourites, T-Shirt Time with a marvelous come from behind win, while in the second semi, underdogs Molly Malones also fought back to grab a brilliant victory over Clonbony Flyers.
The final was another thrilling affair with Molly’s just shading things at the break. Two goals midway through the second period for Molly Malones increased their advantage and despite late green flags from the ‘Skywalkers, Molly’s own late series of points finally pushed then to a  3-13 to  4-06 victory.
Here to fill us in on Wellington mens final’s Sunday’ is Kerry native, Wellington GAA Chairman, Donal Kavanagh.
