Glanbia called up a couple of Wexford's leading GAA celebrities for the official opening of the company's new store in Bunclody.

The shop at Carrigduff was acquired recently from Wexford Farmer's Co-op. Curiously, it was the only WFC premises to actually be located outside of County Wexford, as its site on the outskirts in Bunclody is just over the border into County Carlow.

Nevertheless, the new owners were happy to welcome Wexford hurler and footballer Lee Chin to the opening. And he was accompanied hurling manager Liam Dunne who expects to have the undivided attention of the Faythe Harrier next year.

The store caters for farmers with animal feeds, fertilisers and veterinary supplies. Glanbia is also hoping to attract the general public by offering general hardware, outdoor clothing and gardening supplies.
