Another legend of our great national game has sadly passed away…
The death has taken place of Jack Harding. Harding was full-forward on the Wexford team that shocked the Premier County in the 1960 All-Ireland hurling final.
In 1960, Harding made his debut with Wexford in the National Hurling League and The Irish Times have described his career as “brief, but burned brightly”. He was a regular starter on Wexford’s All-Ireland winning team in 1960 and he played a central role in Wexford’s successful year.
Harding, who had recently turned 87, was a member of the Shelmaliers club in Wexford.
“It is with a heavy heart that we learned of the passing of Jack Harding. The club would like to extend our sympathies to the Harding, Harding Kenny, Lanigan & Roche families at this this sad time,” the Shelmaliers club said.
He will be deeply missed by his family and friends and we’d also like to pay our deepest sympathies to those closest to him.
