Wexford Hurling Fan

Gleefully shouted by a Wexford Hurling fan outside Croke Park in 1996: We’ve won one All-Ireland in a row.

Wexford GAA: Wexford is one of the few counties to have won the All-Ireland Senior Championship in both football and hurling. Wexford have won five Football Championships, with the most recent in 1918. Hurling has been played in Wexford from medieval times. Evidence of this can be found in the hurling ballads of the 15th and 16th centuries. 

The nickname “Yellowbellies” is said to have been given to the county’s hurlers by Sir Caesar Colclough of Tintern in south Wexford, following a 17th-century game between a team of hurlers under his patronage and a team of hurlers from Cornwall, near Glynn in county Wexford. Others have said that King George III shouted “come on the yellow bellies” at an exhibition match near London, in which the Wexford hurlers were wearing yellow ribbons.
