First up for Wexford were Kilkenny 'A' with Wexford winning 3-2, followed by a 5-0 win over Meath 'B'. The last game of the morning session was Wexford against Wicklow, with Wexford the victors on a scoreline of 4-1.

The Wexford 'B' team comprised Lorcan Fleming, Jack Feeley, David Remenyik, Maurice Cogley-O'Connor, Chloe Carroll, Lara Murphy and Bethany Tranker.
The morning session consisted of three rounds. First up for Wexford 'B' were Dublin 'A' who won 5-0. Kilkenny 'B' won the next game 5-0 before Kildare 'B' prevailed 4-1.
This result put the Wexford 'B' team into Division 4 for the afternoon with Meath 'A' and Meath 'B'. Wexford 'B' finished runner-up in this group.
It is a great achievement for these young players to be selected to represent their county. A big thanks to Laura Lynch and Caroline Cogley who managed the teams. The possibilities are endless for these young players.
