Long-Serving Wexford Footballer Calls It A Day On His Inter-County Career

Wexford’s senior football squad is now without another long-standing servant, as Daithí Waters of St. Martin’s has called time on his inter-county career…

Wexford GAA confirmed the decision on Wednesday.

The St Martins club man made his debut for the Wexford footballers back in 2009 and was a regular starter in the mid-field line throughout his career.

His retirement ends more than a decade in the Purple and Gold, as Waters made his league debut back in 2009, followed by his first appearance in the championship a year later.

Waters, who was a big presence on the field, played more than 100 times for Wexford in league and championship combined.

Cathaoirleach of CLG Loch Garman, Michéal Martin, is among those who have paid tribute to him for his service to Wexford.

“Daithí was one of our most consistent and dependable players throughout his inter-county career, and to play more than 100 times for your county shows both great dedication and great talent. On behalf of all in Wexford GAA, I thank him sincerely for his service, and wish him all the best for the future,” Martin said.

One of Waters former team-mates, PJ Banville, also led the tributes for the Wexford man:

“What a warrior and what a player to play with. They don’t make them like him anymore. All the best in retirement,” Banville said.

Thanks for the memories, Daithí,

The news comes shortly after another Wexford legend, Brian Malone, decided to hang up his boots too.
