Shore faces anxious wait

Andrew Shore is still awaiting the result of his appeal against a 48-week ban.

Shore brought his appeal before the Warwickshire County Board Appeals Committee in Coventry on Saturday.

The Wexford defender was hit with the ban after playing for Birmingham club, Roger Casements, last October.

The former Davidstown-Courtnacuddy clubman, who now plays his club hurling and football with Parnells in Dublin, represented himself at the hearing.

It is understood that Shore will have to wait seven days to know the outcome of the appeal hearing.


Fitzy's Carlow-bound

Damien Fitzhenry has enjoyed a close association with Carlow in recent years, so it's fitting that he should be the guest of honour at the Wexford Association Carlow and Friends social night in Carpenter's Lounge, Carlow, on Friday, January 30, with music, dancing , craic and a bit of reminiscing on times past promised.

Damien is currently settling into his new role as a Wexford Senior hurling selector, but he got a good grounding in management over the past few seasons with the Erin's Own club in Bagenalstown.

Damien will perform the Carlow launch of the DVD of his glittering career between the posts, with all

proceeds going towards mental health services.

Music and dancing afterwards will be to Wexford duo Slaney Mist who are very popular in the Carlow area. Admission is free and the organisers are hoping for plenty of support.

The Wexford Association in Carlow has been in existence for 21 years.
