Ferns opening on October 11
The official opening of the Wexford G.A.A. Centre of Excellence will now take place on Sunday, October 11.
The President of the G.A.A., Aogán O Fearghail, will perform the ceremony, having already visited the venue just outside Ferns in June.
The Centre, now up and running and sponsored by Halo Tiles, gained glowing praise from counties during the hosting of the national Féile Peil earlier this summer. It will now be the main training centre for all Wexford inter-county teams.
Interestingly, the new date will come at a time when the domestic championships are being completed, so it's unusual to see a Sunday at that time of year devoted to an official opening.
