O'Connor Scores Outrageous Point As Oulart-The-Ballagh Relegated In Wexford

Oulart-The-Ballagh have been relegated from the Wexford Senior Hurling Championship after a relegation playoff defeat to St Martin's.

St Martin's won Saturday's game 1-26 to 0-16 at Wexford Park. Just four years ago, the two sides met in the county final, a game which saw St Martin's win their third Wexford title.

The highlight of Saturday's match - which saw former Wexford managers John Meyler (St Martin's) and Liam Dunne (Oulart-The-Ballagh) on the sidelines - was an outrageous over-the-shoulder point from midfield by St Martin's centre-forward Jack O'Connor.

Oulart-The-Ballagh have won the senior title 13 times in the last 27 years. Their first victory was in the 1994 final against St Martin's.
