The Wexford County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association is one of the 32 county boards of the GAA in Ireland.

Perverse times. A decent game that might easily have been a listless exchange between teams already qualified for National Hurling League semi-finals, yet solemn-faced silence from the protagonists afterwards, as if to engage with the conventional courtesies would be to swallow down pure hemlock.
