The Wexford Senior footballers departed from the All-Ireland championship race at the first hurdle in the qualifiers in Innovate Wexford Park on Saturday, June 25, losing to Fermanagh by 0-19 to 1-11.

Wexford 1-11 Fermanagh 0-19

They trailed by 0-10 to 1-6 at half-time after a goal from wing-back Simon Donohoe, but points from John Tubritt and Ben Brosnan gave them the lead on the re-start.

However, the home side endured a scoreless spell of 22 minutes from the midway stage of the third quarter onwards as Fermanagh took control.

The northerners kicked a decisive five points without reply in that period and were full value for their victory, even though Wexford briefly rallied near the end with points from Tubritt and substitute Shane Roche.

All that's left on the inter-county football scene now is the involvement of the Juniors in the All-Ireland semi-final against Mayo on July 23 after they retained their Leinster title with a victory over Louth during the week.
