Several Wexford players will contest the Fitzgibbon Cup semi-finals…
Two Fitzgibbon Cup teams with strong Wexford contingents will avoid each other in the upcoming Fitzgibbon Cup final.
IT Carlow, with Wexford players such as Cathal Dunbar, Seamus Casey, Shane Reck, Michael Redmond, Rory Higgins, Adam Howlin, will now play the Jamie Wall trained Mary Immaculate College.
IT Carlow defeated NUIG on Thursday evening; Oylegate-Glenbrien’s Seamus Casey was on of the stars of the thriller. The Wexford inter-county player scored 1-07.
Another Wexford native, Rathnure’s Rory Higgins starred for IT Carlow scoring two goals, while he was also directly involved in setting up Liam Blanchfield’s goal with a cheeky flick:
In the other semi-final, DCU also have a strong Wexford contingent.
Wexford players on the DCU team include Oisín Foley, Rory O’Connor, Damien Reck, Conor Hearne, Conor Firman and Eoin Murphy.
In DCU’s victory over WIT, St Martins hurler Rory O’Connor scored 0-04, with three points coming from frees, while Damien Reck also found himself on the scoresheet with a point from play.
There are no Wexford representatives on the Mary I or UCC team, so Wexford hurling fans will likely be hoping for a IT Carlow vs DCU Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup final.
