2016 Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Championship Semi Finals Ticket Prices & Information
Semple Stadium, Thurles
Tipperary 0-16 Wexford 2-11. Unbelievable finish to the match yesterday.
Tipp were in the driving seat for most of the game, but Wexford with the ‘never say die’ attitude and a little bit of magic got the win.
Again, it was Una Leacy grabbing a great goal and Kate firing over frees and points from play. Three great saves from Mags Darcy, a hook from Sarah OConnor, a little grab of the sliotar off a Tipp hurl by Kate. Catches from Katrina Parrock, a broken ball from Una for Emma Walsh to finish to the net … The list goes on, but at the end of today, Wexford’s All Ireland journey still goes on and we live to fight another day.
There was a very good wexford attendance in Walsh Park and they willed the players to finish strongly. The crowd vocally got behind the team to give them a massive lift when the hard ground and the heat had worn the players down!
Wexford: Mags Darcy, Karen Atkinson, Siona Nolan, Ciara Storey, Sarah O’Connor, Mary Leacy, Deirdre Codd, Emma Walsh (1-0), Shelley Kehoe, Jackie Quigley, Katrina Parrock (0-1), Una Sinnott, Linda Bolger (0-1), Una Leacy (1-1), Kate Kelly (0-8). Subs: Stacey Kehoe for Deirdre Codd, Chloe Foxe for Una Sinnott, Louise O’Leary for Ciara Storey, Ciara Donohoe for Jackie Quigley.
