Footballers gain promotion!

Wexford 0-18 Antrim 2-9:

The Wexford footballers won a famous victory in Casement Park over Antrim, a win which has secured them poll position in the division and assured them of promotion to Division 2 next year.

In his post match interview a drained but happy Jason Ryan declared that his team ‘destroyed’ Antrim. Wexford play Longford in the divisional final on the 28th but must also play them in a now meaningless game on the 8th of April.
