Wexford FC Women’s ‘Mnásome’ Campaign: Celebrating the Women and Girls of Wexford

In an exciting and empowering initiative, Wexford FC Women proudly announces the launch of the ‘Mnásome’ Campaign, set to kick off on April 27th during the home league fixture against Shelbourne. This game promises to be more than just a match; it will be an all-encompassing celebration of the remarkable women and girls of Wexford, spanning various domains including business, education, sport, arts, fashion, and food. Spearheaded by one of our former stars Linda Douglas, our Mnásome focus group, with an impressive line up, are intent on delivering not just an event, but a movement that Wexford can be proud of.
