Wicklow squad gear up for Kennedy Cup

The Wicklow squad’s preparations for the upcoming Kennedy Cup competition are well underway.

The annual Limerick based competition gets underway on Tuesday, June 11th, with the final taking place on Saturday, June 15th.

Wicklow were drawn in group one of the 32 team tournament alongside Wexford, Waterford and the West Waterford and East Cork Schoolboys League back in March.

In total, seven clubs will be represented in the squad, with Ashford Rovers boasting the most inclusions with seven of their players being selected to represent the county.
