Ladies in­volved in shield win in W.I.T.

Enniscorthy Guardian - - SPORT -

WHILE OUT­RIGHT vic­tory went to Ul­ster in the ladies’ foot­ball in­ter-pro­vin­cial tour­na­ment held in W.I.T. re­cently, there was some con­so­la­tion for Le­in­ster when they col­lected the shield crown.

And there was a strong Wex­ford in­volve­ment on the suc­cess­ful panel, as the games fea­tured key con­tri­bu­tions from Mary Rose Kelly, Bernie Breen and Maria Byrne.

The fix­tures for the 2019 Lidl Na­tional League Di­vi­sion 2 cam­paign were also re­leased last week, and the Slaneysiders’ first game will be away to Water­ford on Fe­bru­ary 2.

They will en­ter­tain Clare eight days later, be­fore meet­ing Ty­rone on Fe­bru­ary 23.

The March 3 fix­ture will be par­tic­u­larly in­ter­est­ing for Breen as it will be away to her na­tive Kerry, while the squad will also be on the road to Laois a fort­night later.

Wex­ford will host Ca­van on March 24, and they will be on the road once more to face Ar­magh in their fi­nal group fix­ture on April 7.
