Shelmalier boys star in Wexford’s historic victory.
Any Shelmalier or Wexford supporter will remember for many a long year Wexfords historic victory over Meath in the Leinster Senior Football championship in Carlow on Sunday last. And what an impact our own local hero’s of Brian Malone and David Walsh had on this important match. Brian stated a corner back against the famed and All Star Graham Geraghty, but he spent little time in that position as he covered every inch of the park, displaying his outstanding skills of both attacking and defensive play. He played very well in the first half, being one of Wexfords main obstacles to Meath’s constant attacks, but when all seemed lost at half time, Brian produced a man of the match performance in the second half, to ensure a famous victory. David started on the bench, where many Wexford supporters suggested he should have started at corner back. However, he proved these supporters correct when he made an immediate impact when being introduced early in the second half. David’s great linkup play on the second half contributed in a big way to the major turnaround in this match.
Well done lads, the over the water is proud of you both
