Two years on, Faythe Harriers have defeated the Rapparees by five points to claim the Wexford Premier Minor (now u-17) Hurling championship.

It’s been eighteen years since the Harriers last won the Premier Minor Hurling title, a team that then consisted of Jim Berry, Donal Mooney, and Nigel Byrne, to name just a few.

But, if this trend is anything to go by, Faythe Harriers will be a serious force to be reckoned with in the near future, as the players progress into the club’s senior ranks.

The new generation.
