The All Ireland Rounders Champions Glynn Barntown Ladies were hailed for their recent success at a Civic Reception in the Irish National Heritage Park.

The team were welcomed to the heritage park by Mayor of Wexford Cllr Frank Staples, along with Cllr George Lawlor, Cllr Ger Carthy, Cllr Tony Dempsey and President of the Rounders Association of Ireland Joe O'Donoghue. The team were presented with a plaque to honour their All-Ireland title.

Family and friends of the team members also came along for the proud occasion.

'It was an excellent night and the team were absolutely delighted,' said Mayor of Wexford Cllr Frank Staples. 'It's really great for them as the Senior Ladies Rounders team was only founded ten years ago. They have reached the All-Ireland semi-finals five times before their win this year.'

Captain of the team Shirley Roche was unable to attend the ceremony due to illness but the mayor and others present passed on their best wishes to her.
