FOUR-TIME All-Ireland camogie winner Mags D'Arcy has joined Davy Fitzgerald's backroom team and is now working with the Wexford senior hurlers.

The Slaneysider's legendary female goalkeeper, who is currently injured, has not ruled out returning to play with the county camogie side.

But she recently took up a role with her native county's senior hurlers and has quickly transitioned from initially working with their goalkeepers to general coaching and performance analysis with the Slaneysiders.

"I've learnt a huge amount already in the five to six weeks that I've been involved and I'm very thankful for the opportunity," she said. "We're out in Nowlan Park this Sunday and I'm down to training tonight so it's hell for leather at the moment and I'm really enjoying it."

D'Arcy (30) is regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in the history of camogie.

She made her senior debut for Wexford in 2003, was a key member of the team that won All-Ireland senior titles in 2007, 2010 and 2011 and won her first county senior title with St Martin's last winter when they also reached the Leinster final.

She has also been an outspoken advocate for one unified body to govern GAA, camogie and ladies' football.
