Two Wexford Locals Selected To Head To Australia To Partake In AFL Trials

An opportunity to live life as a professional athlete has arisen for two Wexford natives…

Two Wexford locals have been selected as part of a quintet to go to Australia to partake in trials for the Australian Football League.

Crossabeg’s Ronan Devereux, who was a member of the Wexford Senior football panel last year, will join Sligo’s Luke Towey, Donegal’s Peadar Mogan and Armagh’s Ross McQuillan who will be taking part in a two-week AFL international combine.

According to the Irish Independent, Devereux, Mogan, Towey and McQuillan have been chosen from a group of about twenty hopefuls who are being monitored by AFL Europe and took part in an Irish combine in UCD last December.

St Martins club-man and current Wexford Senior footballer Barry O’Connor will trial exclusively with Sydney Swans next month.
