THERE was a special Wexford connection to the Munster senior football semi-final at the weekend.

Limerick and Tipperary went head-to-head to earn the right to face football Titans, Kerry, in the provincial final, with the Shannon-siders emerging victorious thanks to goals from Josh Ryan and Brian Donovan.

The historic result will see Limerick appear in their first senior Munster final in 12 years.

However, during the break in the adult action the half-time break saw local primary school kids take to the pitch for an underage football match.

Among the players who lined out for Tipperary was Anne Dempsey, from Littleton National School, and among those in attendance to witness her in action was her grandfather, former Wexford councillor and former chairperson of Wexford GAA County Board, Tony Dempsey.

It was a great experience for Annie and her young teammates to line out in FBD Semple Stadium.

While her home team didn’t come out on top in the senior game, Annie enjoyed her own time on the pitch and had a great game herself.
