Uplifting Video Of Wexford GAA Supporters Promotes Autism Awareness

An uplifting video has been released ahead of Wexford’s championship match versus Clare this weekend…

Kids throughout Wexford, wearing the Purple and Gold, starred in the video supporting the Yellowbellies. In the video, a host of supporters are seen using sign-language to sing the words of the now-famous Wild Swans song, ‘The Purple and Gold’.

A host of Wexford hurling and football heroes also took part in the new uplifting video which serves to promote Autism Awareness in conjunction with a Cottage Autism Network project.

Autism is a developmental disability that remains with a person for his or her whole life. This condition affects the brain’s functions. The first signs usually appear before a child is three years old.

Autism affects girls and boys of all races and in all geographic regions and has a large impact on children, their families, communities and societies. The prevalence is currently rising in many countries around the world.

It’s not the first time — and it won’t be the last — that Wexford GAA have championed inclusivity and Autism Awareness.

In August 2019, history was made at Wexford Park after Wexford staged the first ever Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp for children on the Autism Spectrum.
