What a wonderful weekend that was for Féile Peile!
It may have been disappointing on the playing field for the Ferns team, as they lost all four of the matches they played, but if ever there was an event that showed how sport can be about so much more than winning and losing, then surely this was it.
We made great friends over the weekend with our visitors from South London and we consider it an honour to have hosted them, on what was a first trip ever to Ireland for most of their players. We also developed new contacts with the other clubs in our group - Castleblayney Faughs from Monaghan, and An Tóchar from Wicklow - and we know they enjoyed their time in Ferns as much as we enjoyed having them here.
The club grounds looked spendid for the weekend and were a tribute to all who put in so much great work - sincere thanks to all of them. Thanks too to the many who volunteered and helped out in so many ways over the weekend itself, at our own grounds, at the new County Wexford Centre of Excellence, and at various traffic duty points around the village.
It really was a wonderful occasion and we're already looking forward to when the hurling Féile comes to Wexford in a couple of years' time!
We had just one winner in this year's final instalment of the Model County Development Draw, which took place last night.
Jim O'Connor - address given as c/o Dunbars - was the lucky man. His name was actually the very last one out, as he scooped a €300 prize in the Loyalty Draw for fully paid-up members.
Thanks again to all who sold and bought tickets this year, as the Model County Draw remains a major source of funding for us. with most of the money spent on tickets in Ferns actually remaining in Ferns.
The lotto jackpot survived again last night, when the numbers out were 14, 18, 28 and 31.
Lucky Dip winners were Ellen Doyle, Harry Kinch, John Donohoe (Milltown) and Aidan Foley.
The jackpot now grows to €15,600 and the next draw will be held in Codd's of Kilrush on Tuesday July 7.
Our own Gavin Bailey has been named at midfield for the Wexford U-21 side who take on Offaly in O'Connor Park in Tullamore tomorrow (Wednesday) night in the Leinster semi-final.
We wish him and the rest the best of luck and hope that Wexford can make it through to another provincial decider in this grade, where we've enjoyed some success in recent years.
The match is being shown live on TG4, so be sure to tune in.
Well done to our juvenile hurling goalkeeper, James Lawlor, who was the winner today of the Under-16 category of the Wexford Poc Fada championships held at the John F Kennedy Arboretum near New Ross.
Anyone who's been to one of our juvenile matches this year will know that James's pucks are getting longer all the time, and he certainly showed the competition that today!
James now goes forward to take part in the Leinster Final on July 11 next. We say congratulations to him on winning Wexford, and all the best for the next stage.
The Wexford senior hurling team to play Kilkenny in the Leinster Championship semi-final on Sunday has just been named, and our men Ian Byrne and Paul Morris are at numbers 12 and 13, respectively.
We wish them and all the rest of the Wexford team the best of luck as they try spring a surprise in the Cats' back yard. You never know...
We'll have visitors from Fermanagh this Sunday morning (June 21) as members of a small junior GAA club there continue an epic cycling trek to every corner of Ireland.
Belanleck Art McMurroughs are sending out 32 teams of cyclists this weekend to pedal their way to all 1,630 GAA clubs in Ireland. That's a lot of pedalling!
It's all to raise funds for a new pitch at their home in rural Fermanagh and it's a great initiative by a great club. Their Sunday cycle will leave from our grounds in Ferns at 10 a.m. and it would be great to see some people there to wish them well. You can even bring your bike if you like!
There was heartbreak for the Ferns Rackard League hurling team last night as they lost their final in Wexford Park against Castlebridge by just one point.
Ferns were down by 1-8 to 0-4 at the break but a great second half display saw them bring it back to 1-9 to 1-8 before time just ran out.
Well done, boys. We're proud of you.
Good luck to the Ferns team who take on Castlebridge in their Rackard League hurling final in Wexford Park at 6.30 p.m. tomorrow evening (Wednesday).
It would be great to see a big crowd of supporters there to hopefully cheer them on their way to victory!
