Listen: Wexford Radio Gatecrash Davy Fitzgerald's 'Box' In The Mania After Kilkenny Win

While the hurling championship is usually at its best on searing, sunny days, it can also prompt a deluge: raining great, large dollops of life upon all who want it.

The people of Wexford are currently saturated in this thing we call life, with the frenzied slaying of Kilkenny at Wexford Park on Saturday night the latest highlight of a championship thrumming along spectacularly.

Davy Fitzgerald began his Wexford reign telling supporters to "chill the beans", but they have all had the decency to totally ignore him. Davy naturally hasn't taken heed of his own advice, either.

Restricted to his bespoke tinted box on Saturday night, Davy oversaw an occasion so joyous he ended up as virtually the only person involved with Wexford who didn't make it onto the pitch.

Under terms of his ban for coming onto the pitch against Tipperary in the league, Fitzgerald had to stay in his specially-constructed box at the back of the stand, beside the press box. But as the final whistle went, and hysteria enveloped the commentary team on South East Radio, Liam Spratt corralled Davy to ask him to cast off the limits of his suspension and preach to the good folk of Wexford.


Here's how it played out:

Davy Fitzgerald is standing on a chair beside us, waving to fans. You can't talk, can you?

I don't care if there's a ban. Say something to the people of Wexford.

Magnificent. South East have cut together the highlights, and posted it on Facebook. Watch it below, it's just wonderful.
