Senior managers returned for 2016

Wexford senior football manager, David Power, will also take charge of the Under-21 team for the 2016 championship campaign.

The Tipperary native, who will be embarking on a second year at the Senior helm, was ratified at last Wednesday night's County Board meeting.

He will also remain in charge of the county Junior football team which he guided to Leinster success this year, before losing out in the All-Ireland semi-final to eventual winners, Kerry.

Liam Dunne will embark on a fifth year in charge of the county's Senior hurlers. He will have Ger Cushe, Tom Foley and Aidan O'Connor as his selectors.

Meanwhile, Liam Dunne has also been ratified to take charge of the county Intermediate hurling team for 2016.

Wexford District Chairman, Thos. Ryan (St. Anne's), proposed that the current Intermediate team management be returned for a third term.

However, County Chairman Diarmuid Devereux told delegates that it was the feeling of this year's manager, Seamus Murphy, that Intermediate should come under the Senior management.

His view was expressed after a heavy defeat to Galway in the Leinster final.

When the proposal that Senior management take charge was put to the meeting, it was carried by a huge majority.
