Hegarty will be hoping to get the campaign off to a positive start. Given that he has previously stated that Wexford will primarily focus on Division 4 of the League for 2023, it’s important that they build up some momentum in these games too.

Wexford will then take on Westmeath away in Round 2, pencilled in to take place on Sat Jan 7th, The Downs GAA Club, 2pm. In the third round, Wexford will play Louth at home on Wed Jan 11th, Hollymount, 8pm.
