Meanwhile the other semi-final between Cork and Kilkenny will be played on Sunday, August 16th in order to facilitate Cork’s dual players as their footballers are due to play on Saturday (August 15th) following their victory over Meath on Monday.

Stacey Kehoe got Wexford off the mark on Monday afternoon, and it looked like they were firmly in the driving seat when Katrina Parrock and Una Sinnott added points.

Dublin had a goal disallowed for a square ball before Ali Maguire opened their account from a free. Wexford responded through Player of the Match Kate Kelly who added three (and went on to score 0-8 in total) to put her side in the lead 0-7 to 0-3 at the break.

Dublin were not going to give up easily though, and picked up the intensity in the second half. A rocket of a goal from Louise O’Hara with just four minutes on the clock left just one between the sides (0-11 to 1-7) and set-up a nerve-wracking finale.

Wexford held firm though, with Kelly and Shelley Kehoe adding points to secure victory and ultimately, earn their spot in this year's All-Ireland semi-final.
