It’s ten years since Matty Forde kicked Wexford into a first Leinster final for 52 years

They had come back from ten points down to beat Meath in the 2008 provincial quarters at Dr Cullen Park, but then 2003 winners Laois lay in waiting.
Forde began the semi-final at Croke Park by kicking six wides in a row from play, before finishing the game with 0-6 as they won 0-18 to 0-12. All of which meant a first Leinster final since 1956.
“I think the main thing that day was just relief,” Forde exclusively tells AIB GAA.
