Historic Wexford heroines return home

Updated: September 17, 2012

A massive crowd is expected on the streets of Wexford this evening, as fans turn out in their thousands to greet their history making camogie team.

Wexford won an unprecedented third All-Ireland final in a row yesterday defeating Cork by 3-13 to 3-06 in a stunning senior camogie final. It was the county’s first hat trick of titles at this level and the first time since the Model County’s senior footballers claimed four All-Irelands in a row from 1915 -1918 that any Wexford team had achieved such an incredible feat.

Oulart the Ballagh’s Ursula Jacob was her side’s heroine in a thrilling victory over the Rebelettes. The daughter of Wexford’s first hurling all star, Mick Jacob, netted 2-07 in a superb display.

The victory celebrations will get underway around 5.30pm in Gorey and Wexford’s heroines will parade the O’Duffy Cup through the streets of Camolin, Ferns, Enniscorthy and Oylgate before reaching Wexford town. They are expected in Wexford at 8.30pm for a reception in Redmond Square.
