Wexford ladies go in search of All-Ireland glory

Wexford ladies go in search of All-Ireland glory

Croke Park is the stage for the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Ladies' Championship Final on Sunday 31st July.

Wexford are hoping to exercise the demons of 2021 and go one step further in 2022.

Once again, Wexford are underdogs in the season defining game- with Laois the opposition this time around.

But it’s two teams vying for silverware and progression toward the senior grade. 60 minutes can tell a lot and past experiences can add to the occasion.

The previous meeting between the sides ended in favour of the side from the South East - the Leinster semi-final.

Laois will feel that they left a place in the final behind them that day. They were the better side and allowed an underwhelming Wexford side to gain momentum.

It is that resilience which could stand to the yellowbellies, who overcame the better side in extra time that day.

The Leinster final was a step too far though, losing out to Kildare in the provincial decider.

It is a difficult situation to find yourself in: the side losing out in the Leinster final, as they did in the league final to add to the aforementioned heartbreak in 2021.

But there is confidence in this Wexford side and a desire to return to the senior grade. They've climbed the mountain already this season, why not complete the feat a second time?

It's set up for a nail-biter and one that's sure to do the game justice.

Throw in in the capital is at 1:45.
