Budding hurlers from across the county will show off their skills when stars Austin Gleeson and Lee Chin pay a visit for a Centra community hurling event in Innovate Wexford Park.

The local players will show off their skills at the #LiveWell Target Challenge and fight for the chance to secure a place at the ultimate day out in Croke Park.
