The Allianz League Division 1B campaign got off to the worst possible start for the Wexford Senior hurlers in the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday, February 13, when they were on the receiving end of a 2-23 to 0-15 thrashing from Limerick.

Wexford 0-15 Limerick 2-23

Most of the damage was done in the first-half when the visitors were outclassed to such an extent that they trailed by 0-16 to 0-4 at the break.


Some improvement was seen on the re-start as Wexford scored seven of the first eight points, but a 50th-minute goal from Limerick substitute Graeme Mulcahy put paid to any hopes of a comeback.


A second late strike from Declan Hannon rubbed salt in the wounds as the Slaneysiders ended up defeated by 14 points. They will have to pick up the pieces for the visit of Clare to Innovate Wexford Park next Sunday, February 21.
