Wexford Native Captures Nicky Rackard Silverware With Donegal Hurlers

A Wexford native won a special piece of silverware this weekend..

St Martins club-man Luke White captured Nicky Rackard silverware last weekend.

The Wexford native switched county allegiance to the Donegal hurlers after taking up a Religion and History teaching post in Carndonagh Community School last year.

White was part of Wexford’s successful u-21 teams in 2014 and 2015, which saw the Yellowbellies crowned Leinster Champions.

The Wexford-man played between the posts for the Donegal hurlers when they faced Mayo in the Nicky Rackard Cup final in Croke Park yesterday, Sunday 22nd November.

Donegal defeated Mayo on a scoreline of 3-18 to 0-21. It was a game which saw White pull off some fine saves and notably, in a close encounter, it was one where he didn’t concede any goals either.

The cup itself, the Nicky Rackard Cup, is named after the legendary Wexford hurler, so it was no doubt an extra-special victory for Wexford-man White.
