The Waterford County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association is one of the 32 county boards of the GAA in Ireland.
Not for the first time, the Mahony boys led the charge for Ballygunner last Sunday. Mikey, Kevin, Philip and Pauric all contributed handsomely as the Waterford champions dispatched Ballyea and moved into a Munster semi-final.
THE race to replace Davy Fitzgerald as Wexford hurling boss is in full swing with Jason Ryan (inset) the surprise front-runner as the former Model football manager looks set to possibly make a sensational switch to the small ball.

In 1992 he was marking Kieran Delahunty in a Munster first round game when the Waterford forward nailed a late equalising free. Returning to his position he is reputed to have told Daly to stick to the traditional music, implying that hurling wasn’t worth his time.
