Wexford People - - SPORT -

ACLEARER pic­ture was pre­sented on Wex­ford’s in­ter-county com­mit­ments for 2019 last week when the Le­in­ster Coun­cil met to fi­nalise var­i­ous dates and venues. The Se­nior foot­ballers will be tak­ing on Louth in In­no­vate Wex­ford Park on May 12, and there is a huge in­cen­tive to win that one given that the venue will also host All-Ire­land cham­pi­ons Dublin on May 25 if the home side clears that first hur­dle.

The Se­nior hurlers will have a bye on May 11-12 be­fore fac­ing Dublin away on May 18-19, and Gal­way away on Sun­day, May 26, at 4 p.m.

They will have another bye on June 1-2, and will then be at home to Car­low on June 8-9, and to Kilkenny on June 15-16.

Un­der-20 hurl­ing is re­plac­ing Un­der-21, and Wex­ford have a bye to the semi-fi­nal where they will face Dublin, West­meath, Of­faly, Car­low or the Ul­ster rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

In Un­der-20 foot­ball, Wex­ford will be at home to Wick­low, with the win­ners not hav­ing to travel ei­ther for a quar­ter-fi­nal clash against Louth.

The Mi­nor foot­ballers are in a very tough group along with Dublin, Meath and Of­faly, while their hurl­ing coun­ter­parts will play tier one games away to Of­faly, home to Kilkenny, and home to Dublin in that or­der.

Mi­nor foot­ball is due to start on Easter Tues­day, April 23, with the first hurl­ing game on the fol­low­ing Satur­day.
