Former Wexford Hurler Named Joint Manager Of Wexford Minor Hurling Team

The Wexford minor hurlers will have not just one – but two – new managers in the coming season…

Glynn-Barntown’s Paul Carley will join Buffers Alley clubman Aidan O’Connor as the pair will take the reigns of the minor hurling team for the upcoming season. The news was announced at tonight’s Wexford’s County Board meeting.

Both newly appointed managers have previously worked in the underage and minor set-ups previously.

Carley, a former inter-county hurler with Wexford, was appointed manager of Bray Emmetts in 2018 and he has managed Bray Emmetts since.

Carley comes into the minor set-up fresh from success after he led the Wicklow side to Wicklow Senior Championship glory in 2019, stopping Gary Laffan’s Glenealy in their quest for the three-in-a-row.

O’Connor has previously managed his native club team Buffers Alley, while he also has an extensive background in athletic performance.

The joint-managers will be searching for a similar success story to last year, where the Wexford minor hurlers were crowned Leinster hurling champions for the first time since 1985.

Meanwhile, in other news, Brendan Kehoe will continue in his role as the Wexford u-20 football manager for the coming season, while former Wexford footballer David Murphy has been ratified as Wexford minor football manager.
