It was a difficult day for the Kilkenny youngsters, with their county board garnering much of the criticism on social media.
Kilkenny minors- @eoinmurphy73 that's hardly fair on any young lad?— Billy O'Loughlin (@billyoloughlin) April 16, 2016
I played schools football against Kilkenny teams and they were superb. But Wexford 17-20 Kilkenny 0-0. County should be embarrassed.— Ewan MacKenna (@EwanMacKenna) April 16, 2016

Young lads basically abandoned by their county board
Scandalous. No youngster should be subjected to beating like that. Kilkenny county board need to look at themselves https://t.co/JwvuqcfY6q— Mark Gallagher (@bailemg) April 16, 2016
@shanegav Not particularly fair on Wexford either who go into a q/f very very under-prepared. Same every year, just tokenism from Kilkenny— Enda Finn (@KildareFinny) April 16, 2016
Important to realise the Kilkenny minor footballers play the losers of Carlow and Laois in the back-door. They may well be back yet.— Bill Lahart (@BillLahart) April 16, 2016
