Every Monday, Wexford Weekly will now provide you with a new “Wexford sports tweets of the week” series…
(Monday 11 December 2017 – Monday 18 December 2017):
Gorey boxer Niall “Boom Boom Baz” Kennedy continued his incredible professional win-streak after defeating America’s Danny Calhoun on Sunday. After a second-round KO, Kennedy is now 10-0 and due to his displays in the ring, he received recognition from Michael Conlon, Coach Kavanagh & professional Wolverhampton footballer and Wexford native Conor Levingston. If 2017 is anything to go by, fans of Niall Kennedy will be hopeful about 2018.

Former Wexford hurler Diarmuid “Gizzy” Lyng was one of the main activists behind the recent initiative to tackle the homelessness crisis in Ireland namely “Gaelic Voices for Change.” A united sleepout campaign to raise awareness of the ongoing national problem, and a campaign that raised over €200,000 and counting…
One night is pittance compared to what people are going thru, but we're here, under the Pikeman, vibrant with their fortune, but gathered together, a few minutes silence to consider things more deeply. Grateful to @GaelicVoices4Ch for bringing us together #SolidaritySleepout pic.twitter.com/ZfNyCUVeZO

Operated by Cian O Lionain, the St Martins GAA account might be a regular contender for this weekly “Wexford sports tweets of the week” series. St Martins reached the u21 Wexford county football final after defeating HWH Bunclody, and their PRO was in high spirits as the club continued their incredible year.
All over, we win 4-8 to 1-4 and on to county U21 football final, probably on Saturday 23 December just 2 days before Ben Maddock's birthday. And Jesus's too, of course.
