NINETEEN PLAYERS were used in Wexford’s successful campaign in 1996, with the following dozen starting all five games: Damien Fitzhenry, Colm Kehe, Ger Cushe, Rod Guiney, Liam Dunne, Larry O’Gorman, Adrian Fenlon, Rory McCarthy, Martin Storey, Larry Murphy, Garry Laffan and Eamonn Scallan,

Three more players were involved at some stage in all five matches: Tom Dempsey started four and came on as a substitute once, George O’Connor started three and came on twice, while Billy Byrne was sprung from the bench in all five encounters – super-sub indeed!
