TWO WEXFORD schools operated outside their sporting comfort zones in the past week to bring hard-earned Leinster titles back to the county.
First up were Wexford C.B.S. who made a major breakthrough in rugby in Donnybrook on Tuesday last when they won the provincial Senior Development Cup for the first time with an emphatic 51-20 thrashing of Ratoath College.
Although traditionally a Gaelic games stronghold, the Boker boys showed that their hard work in recent years with the oval ball is paying off as team captain Collie Joyce-Ahearne led them to a fine victory .
And there was more good news yesterday (Monday) when Ramsgrange Community School captured the Leinster Senior 'B' girls' soccer title in Waterford, with Dean Goodison there to see history being made (see his report on page 95).
Similar to the C.B.S. in rugby, there is no strong tradition of soccer in the south-west county establishment, but they are now just one step away from an All-Ireland final appearance.
