History

Hurling was played in Wexford from medieval times. A team of Wexfordmen travelled to play the Cornish champions in the late 18th century. Having no formal jerseys, each of the Wexford players tied a strip of yellow cloth around their chests so they could identify each other. They won the game, and as they left the field King George III was heard to remark "Well done the yellow bellies." This is how Wexford acquired the nickname that they still use today. Cornwall (Cornish: Kernow) is a county in South West England on the peninsula that lies to the west of the River Tamar. ... George III (George William Frederick) (4 June 1738 – 29 January 1820) was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 25 October 1760 until 1 January 1801, and thereafter King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death. ...


Gaelic football

Wexford had one of the greatest football teams in the history of the GAA during the 1910's with them winning six Leinster and four All-Irelands in a row. The team was trained by 1900 star Jem Roche - who had fought for the World Heavyweight boxing Championship!


Wexford's last major football success was winning the Leinster title in 1945. From then on, hurling took precedent in Wexford and as a consequence, the Wexford footballers suffered and descended into obscurtity for many years.


However, recently Wexford have had a very strong team. The team beat all the odds to reach the Division 1 League final of 2005 but were beaten by a strong Armagh team that day. The team suffered relegation from Division 1 in 2006 but the county is confident of achieving a good championship run ths year, with the aim being to win the Leinster title. Wexford's current senior football manager is former Dublin and All-Ireland winner Paul Bealin. The Dublin County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association (Irish: Cummann Luthchleas Gael Coiste Contae Ath Cliath) or Dublin GAA is one of the 32 county boards of the GAA in Ireland, and is responsible for Gaelic Games in County Dublin. ... Paul Bealin is a former inter-county Gaelic footballer for Dublin and is the current manager of the Wexford senior football team. ...

Hurling

It is hurling that Wexford people play best. Ask the Kildare players who were beaten by 14-15 to 1-1 in an 1897 Croke Cup match. Or the Antrim team beaten by 12-17 to 2-3 in a 1954 All-Ireland semi-final. Nicky Rackard, who scored 7-8 at that day, was Wexford's greatest hurler. He starred in two great clashes with Cork in 1954 and 1956. Wexford lost the first after having a goal disallowed, but won the second with the combination of a great Art Foley save and Nicky Rackard goal in the closing minutes. 1897 (MDCCCXCVII) was a common year starting on Friday (see link for calendar). ...

Art Foley was a Wexford goalkeeper from 1946 to 1956. ... (Nicholas) Nicky Rackard (1922-1976) was an Irish sportsperson. ...


In the 1970s the distinctive red-haired Tony Doran was the star as Kilkenny and Wexford played ten rousing Leinster finals in succession. In 1984 they claimed that the final whistle was blown prematurely when they were beaten by a single point in the Leinster final. 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Wexford had a great team during the 1990's and their hard work was rewarded in 1996 when Wexford, led by Liam Griffin and captained by Martin Storey, brought the Liam McCarthy Cup back to Slaneyside for the first time since 1968, they were waiting 28 years. Cork and Kilkenny have dominated the honours in recent years. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...


Wexford's most recent hurling success was in the Leinster Final of 2004 when they defeated Offaly. In the Leinster semi final, they shocked Kilkenny by beating them with a last-gasp goal scored by Mick Jacob after a clinical sideline cut by Adrian Fenlon fell into the hand of Kilkenny centre back Peter Barry, only for the brilliant Mick Jacob to block him down as he tried to get rid of the ball and Jacob subsequently fired the ball to the back of the Kilkenny net ending Kilkenney's 6 year reign as Leinster Champions. Unfortunately, however, hurling in Wexford has been on the slide since 1996, their last All-Ireland success, and the Leinster title in 2004 simply papered over the cracks. 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
