Bobby, Billy and Nicky were the three brothers who formed the cornerstone of the greatest team ever to come out of the Model County, performing herculean feats in Croke ark as the Slaneysiders took on and beat the traditional strongholds with a great deal of panache.

 IT MUST BE TIPP
They had won the 1945 Leinster football title, when the team included Nicky Rackard, but when they qualified for the 1951 All-Ireland hurling final, it was their first All-Ireland appearance for thirty-three years.
It is remarkable to think that in the years leading up to this final, Wexford actually had to wear a jersey of blue and gold hoops, as their famous purple and gold colours were considered an economic indulgence by the manufacturers of the day, in the post-war climate of financial rectitude.
Nicky Rackard proved completely unmanageable in that final, finishing with 3-2 from play, and built a strong foundation for his great reputation, which ensures that his omission from the team of the millenium was cringe-inducing, and indeed diminishes the credibility of that team in my eyes.
