An inspired Conor McDonald performance gave Wexford an expected easy win over Wicklow in the Walsh Cup and set up a meeting with Dublin in the semi-final.

McDonald won everything that came his way until he was called ashore in the second-half.

Of his four points from play, two could have been goals, while he had a hand in another 1-3.

Wicklow moved a man back to act as sweeper, but it didn't have the desired effect. Wicklow actually led at one point, Andy O'Brien scoring a third-minute goal, but their sweeper system left Shaun Murphy free to cut out the supply to O'Brien.

It also gave Wexford extra time around midfield to pick off a few scores - Diarmuid O'Keeffe and Garry Molloy knocked over three each - and hit accurate passes into a forward line.

Wexford led by 18 points at half-time, 2-21 to 1-6, and their substitutes looked to impress Davy Fitzgerald: Jack O'Connor, Aidan Nolan and Damien Reck each scored a goal in the last 10 minutes. Jake Firman (twice) also found the net.

Wicklow will hope to learn a few lessons as they plan another assault on Division 2B and the Christy Ring Cup.

Scorers - Wexford: J Guiney 0-11 (7fs), J Firman 2-3, C McDonald 0-6 (2f), L Rochford 1-4, J O'Connor 1-1, D Reck, A Nolan 1-0 each, G Molloy, D O'Keeffe 0-3 each, P Foley, C Flood 0-2 each, C Dunbar 0-1. Wicklow: A O'Brien 1-6 (5f), G Byrne, W Kavanagh, R Keddy, S Germaine, A Byrne, G Hughes 0-1 each.

Subs: L Chin for O'Keeffe (Blood 17-24), C Dunbar for McDonald, J O'Connor for O'Keeffe (both 43), D Reck for Foley (55, inj), A Nolan for Flood (57).
