Lee Chin Hails Mags D'Arcy's Impact On The Wexford Hurlers

Lee Chin Hails Mags D'Arcy's Impact On The Wexford Hurlers
By PJ Browne

Earlier this year, Mags D'Arcy was appointed as a goalkeeping coach with the Wexford hurlers. The four-time All-Ireland camogie winner had been in regular contact with manager Davy Fitzgerald and the Clare man had asked her to join his backroom team.

"Mags has been great," Wexford joint-captain Lee Chin told Balls at the announcement of Sure as the official statistics partner of the GAA for 2018.

"She's a very positive character and she's very challenging. She's not afraid to speak her mind.

"It's great, that's brilliant for us because it adds that extra element of a different voice, a different mindset. Since she came in, she's done a fantastic job."

Though D'Arcy's role in the set-up was initially said to be as a goalkeeping coach - she's recognised as being one of camogie's best ever keepers - Chin sees the St. Martin's player as having a more diverse impact on the team.

In my opinion, it's more of a wider role. She does work an awful lot with the goalkeepers. She has a relationship with them but she's very much involved with other stuff within the set-up.

She'd be in around drills, motivating and encouraging. She'd be challenging people and asking them different things about the drills.

That's just the type of person Mags is - she's a confident woman and she's doing a great job so far.

Chin's teammate Conor McDonald also hailed D'Arcy's positive influence.

"Mags is a bundle of energy," said McDonald.


"She seems to always be in good form which is always nice to have. She's really encouraging, she'd be always there early training ready to rock. She just fits in nicely and she's really good."
