After much speculation and national media coverage in recent weeks, Davy Fitzgerald has been reappointed to a two-year term as Wexford county senior hurling manager.
Official Wexford GAA confirmed the news this evening on social media. The short statement read: “We are delighted to announce that Davy Fitzgerald is reappointed on a two-year term as our senior hurling manager. Great progress has been made under his direction and we look forward to the journey ahead. Loch Garman Abú!”
Fitzgerald, (48), who led his native Clare to an All-Ireland senior hurling title in 2013, took over Wexford in late 2016, leading them to a rare championship win over Kilkenny in his first season.
In 2019, he guided Wexford to a first Leinster title in fifteen years after which they were beaten by eventual All-Ireland champions Tipperary in a dramatic semi-final encounter at Croke Park in July.
