Wexford Camogie Suffers Financial Punishment For League Walkover

It continues to go from bad to worse for those involved with Wexford camogie…

The Wexford camogie team failed to field a team against Cork in a competitive league match on Sunday.

They gave Cork a walkover, a decision that will now incur financial punishment, which will see the Model County lose half of their WGPA grant.

The WGPA provides an annual grant of €9000 to all counties, but due to their no-show, €4500 will now be withheld. These funds, which are already well-needed, would usually go towards training facilities, performance analysis, and injury prevention.

With this in mind, one must think that the Wexford side surely could have got a squad together…even if it was just for a day out in Cork.

There is now widespread concern about the dire state of Wexford camogie, a side that was a powerhouse of the sport, as recently as 2012.
