On the first day back for Gaelic games since the coronavirus pandemic forced all sport into lockdown, the eyes of the nation were always going to be focused on the mouth-watering tie on Friday night in the Wexford Senior Hurling Championship.

TG4 were there at Chadwicks Wexford Park to capture the meeting of St Martin's and Oulart-The Ballagh.

The Wexford chairman Derek Kent gave a journalist a tour of the stadium where there were 50 hand sanitisers dotted around the place.
