The Wexford Senior hurlers will take on Westmeath this weekend…
After the GAA announced their scheduled televised fixtures, it has emerged that the Wexford v Kilkenny match will not be shown on RTE this weekend.
Likewise, it is not up on the GAA Go platform as a scheduled match.
It means that the only way to watch this match will be to actually attend the game in Chadwicks Wexford Park.
Former Wexford hurler and now-pundit Tom Dempsey has called for Wexford hurling supporters to arrive in Wexford Park in large numbers, for a match that is being dubbed as important – if not more important – than Wexford’s All-Ireland final in 1996.
A loss against Kilkenny, along with a win for Antrim against Westmeath, would see Wexford relegated to the Joe McDonagh Cup for the following season.
It comes following Wexford’s sub-standard Leinster Championship campaign, whereby the suffered losses to both Dublin and more recently, Westmeath, in a game that Wexford fans will be wishing to forget.
Wexford’s Chairman, Micháel Martin, who responded to criticism of the Wexford Senior hurling team and Wexford GAA’s organisational set-up as a whole on South East Radio, has also encouraged the Wexford supporters to arrive in numbers this weekend.
It’s a huge game for the Wexford Senior hurling team, and although their season has ended in terms of further progression into the All-Ireland stages, there’s arguably a much bigger stake on this weekend’s game now as it could see Wexford regress even further.
