Four more county championship titles were decided at Innovate Wexford Park over a busy weekend, with Saturday's Top Oil Intermediate 'A' hurling final producing a most remarkable finish.

St. James' seemed set to snatch the crown from under the noses of Monageer-Boolavogue when they scored 1-1 in added time to move two points clear, but the reds sealed the deal after losing at the same stage in 2013 and 2014 when substitute Mark Gahan rattled the net nearly six minutes into added time for a dramatic 3-10 to 1-15 win.

Earlier on Saturday, Taghmon-Camross also went one better than the previous year when they eased away from Shelmaliers to clinch a first Junior hurling championship crown since 1987 on a 3-16 to 2-6 scoreline. The goals came from Richard Comerford, T.J. Codd and Pierce Doyle.

The worst of the weekend conditions spoiled Sunday's Wexford People Minor football Premier championship final, but it didn't matter to St. Martin's who completed the double with a comfortable 2-9 to 1-3 triumph over Abban O'Rahilly's. Darragh Kenny and Darragh Rossiter got the goals, with the latter joined on the team by his twin, Pádraig, on the same day as their sister, Ciara, helped the Wexford Youths Women to FAI Cup glory.

Finally, big displays from Sam Kelly (0-7) and centre-back Padraig Foley powered Crossabeg-Ballymurn to the Greenstar Under-21 hurling Premier championship crown when they beat Glynn-Barntown by 1-15 to 2-6.
