There were absolute scenes in Wexford this morning as thousands of people stood in line hoping to get their hands on a coveted ticket for their Leinster semi-final clash with Kilkenny on June 10th.

Davy Fitzgerald has sparked a revival amongst the Yellow Bellies' hurlers, and they now seem to have full support of their fans, as an estimated 2,5000 people stood outside Wexford Park this morning with hopes of getting a ticket.

Wexford Park has the capacity of approximately 17,000, and Davy will find himself sat in the stand also, as unfortunately for him, he is banned for this match.

Given the queues, you would think this was an All-Ireland rather than Wexford's second game of the championship.

People were queuing from 4.30am this morning, and one famous face was spotted among the crowd.

All-Ireland winning captain from 1996 Martin Storey isn't even guaranteed his ticket, as he stood in line with the rest of the crowd.

Championship fever has certainly his the county.
