John McAreavey is an Irish sportsperson. He plays Gaelic football with his local club Tullylish and the Down senior inter-county team. His uncle is John McAreavey, Bishop of the Diocese of Dromore.
McAreavey is captain of his club Tullylish. In October 2010, he captained Tullylish to the Down Intermediate Football Championship beating neighbours and rivals Annaclone by a point in the final. McAreavey was named "man-of-the-match". He had also played a crucial role in the semi-final, scoring a late equaliser and then setting up the winner. Prior to this the club had not won anything since a junior title in 1968. The win meant promotion for Tullylish to the Down Senior Football Championship the following season.
McAreavey made his debut for Down in 2008. He scored 2-3 in his first senior appearance which came against Donegal in the Dr. McKenna Cup. He made a substitute appearance in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship 2008 quarter-final against Wexford at Croke Park. Two years later, Down reached the 2010 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final where they lost by one point to Cork. He was selected for the Down panel in 2011, months after his wife Michaela Harte, daughter of Tyrone Gaelic football manager Mickey Harte, was murdered on their honeymoon in Mauritius.Dr McKenna Cup (1) 2008
