Wexford Native Wins Footballer Of The Year For DCU Freshers Team

With talent like this coming through, Wexford’s future is exciting..

Two Wexford natives received individual university honours in their respective sports. A Wexford man won the Freshers hurler of the year and a Wexford native has also won the Freshers footballer of the year, both for DCU.
