Michael O'Brien of Kerry with Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald

A pre-match team talk from 11-year-old Michael O’Brien from Kerry was the catalyst for Wexford’s dramatic late Allianz HL Division 1A victory over Tipperary in Innovate Wexford Park today.

Late Late Toy Show viewers will recall visually impaired Michael being surprised by his hero Davy Fitzgerald on the night...

Davy invited Michael to deliver a team-talk to the Model County squad and today was the day.

Coach Seoirse Bulfin revealed “you could hear a pin drop” when Michael spoke to the players in advance of the clash with the Premier County.

Wexford GAA said their “lucky charm” is welcome back to Innovate Wexford Park any time!
