Carlow's senior hurlers suffered a fifteen point defeat to Wexford on Sunday which sees the Dolmen County relegated to the Joe McDonagh Cup despite brave performances against Kilkenny, Galway and Dublin in this year's Leinster Championship. 

With 6,500 watching at Innovate Wexford Park, Wexford added to earlier draws against Dublin and Galway to pull away from Colm Bonnar's men with a powerful second-half showing, which greatly aids their scoring difference.

Carlow are relegated back to the Joe McDonagh Cup with their place in Leinster for 2020 being taken by the winner of this year's second-tier competition.
