WEXFORD WILL TRAVEL to Dublin, while Kilkenny host Offaly in the Walsh Cup semi-finals next weekend.

Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford dished out a 42-point hammering of Wicklow in their Group 1 encounter to seal a showdown against Dublin on Sunday in Parnell Park.

The Model County sealed a facile 6-36 to 1-12 victory over Wicklow in Ashford, while Pat Gilroy’s Dublin were 4-16 to 0-17 winners against Antrim.

Meanwhile, Kilkenny set up a meeting with Offaly after they accounted for Kildare on a scoreline of 3-18 to 0-8. The Cats were just four in front at half time but they cruised to victory in the second period.

Finally, Offaly booked their spot in the last four after a narrow three-point win over neighbours Westmeath.

The Lake County will rue the defeat, having led by two points at half-time before they missed a 62nd minute penalty at TEG Cusack Park when they were three behind.
