Looks like a two horse race for hurling championship St Martin's and harriers look miles ahead from the rest, football more competitive with st Martin's, shells, barntown, ballnastraw gaels and Sars all with chances

Nope, not true. Rathure have beaten the Harriers who have beaten the Martin's which proves that on any given day a minor team can be beaten. However, Harriers are certainly the very warm favourites as they have the bulk of that team that won the national Féile in 2016 and they are all up the age so it's hard to see how they won't win overall. The battle for second is much tighter though.

Martin's beat rathnure twice this year last time by 15 points only, rathnure beat a depleted harriers team, so Martin's and harriers are way ahead, results don't lie

The harriers and the martins are the two showing the strongest so far. Both at full strenght are a bit ahead of the rest.

Took a trip to piercestown to watch the harriers play the martins. Two very good teams. Really good game of hurling. Id be shocked if one of them didnt win it.

Was at the game too, yeah very entertaining and a high standard, David Codd outstanding at midfield for the martins.

Was at the game strange to see Ritchie lawlor corner forward, I would have Ritchie around midfield ,half forward line, probably the best hurler in Wexford, wasted in their, Ritchie does damage running at defenses, also great catcher of the ball, Martin's look very very good
