A Wexford Man Will Play A Crucial Role In The All-Ireland Hurling Final

Unfortunately, the Wexford hurlers won’t be playing in this years All-Ireland hurling final against Kilkenny…

After agonisingly losing out to Tipperary in the All-Ireland semi-final, it’ll be the Premier County, managed by Liam Sheedy, who’ll be hoping to defeat Brian Cody’s Cats in Croke Park on August 18th.

It’s sure to be a thrilling encounter, and although Wexford won’t be there on the day, they will have an important representative on the pitch.

The GAA announced today that Askamore-Kilrush native James Owens will be the man-in-the-middle for the intriguing encounter between the two hurling giants.

It’ll be Owens’ second All-Ireland final in a row, and his third All-Ireland final overall, having previosly officiated the 2015 All-Ireland and the 2018 All-Ireland hurling final.

Fair play to the Wexford native on his appointment and here’s hoping that he’ll give another stellar performance in the middle of the park, allowing for a free-flowing game.
