Our first big fundraiser of 2021 is March on Together. It's to raise money to install new and improved floodlighting around the hugely-popular walking track at club grounds. A portion of all money raised will also be donated to Wexford Hospice Homecare Services.
March on Together is a walking/running challenge where we're asking people to cover 100km in 30 days, and collect sponsorship while they do so. It will run from Saturday March 6th to Sunday April 4th (Easter Sunday). For more details, see our event page by tapping the button below.
The photo here of the 1963 Rackard League football finalists has generated some interest this week, after Helen Tonks first posted it on Facebook. Tom Dunbar has now had a stab at putting names to all the faces. He's normally fairly good at the picture rounds in a quiz, but if he's not 100% correct here, let us know in the comments and we'll fix things up for him!
Back Row: Cathal Higgins (Teacher), Tom Dunbar, Pat Doran, Michael (Bishop) Nolan, Perie Dunbar, Andy Dwyer, Paddy Doyle, Noel Levingstone, Charlie Brennan, Tony Davitt, Paddy Keyes, Pat Browne, Pat Bolger, Martin O’Connor (Principal)
Front Row: Michael Nolan, Pat Hall, Sean O’Brien, Michael Bernie, Tony Dwyer, Angus Kirwan, Malachi Kirwan, Bob Mackey, Michael O’Neill
Following on from last week's four nominations for the Club Football Team of the Year 2020, we've now got three nominations for the Hurling Team of the Year too - James Tonks at wing back (showing that there's life in the old dog yet!), Gavin Bailey in midfield, and Paul Morris at wing forward.
Paul is one of just a handful of players to be nominated for both the hurling and football teams.
Good luck to them all, and let's hope for a couple of awards to go with all these nominations.
Four Ferns men have earned well-deserved nominations for the Wexford Club Football Team of the Year 2020, on foot of our run to last year's Intermediate Final. They are Ivan Meegan in goal; Patrick Breen in midfield; Paul Morris at wing forward, and Ryan Nolan at corner forward.
The awards will take place on Saturday February 27, and will be broadcast live online on Wexford GAA TV. Best of luck to all our four!
