Since confined to a wheelchair due to illness, Wall has moved into management with the college and was described as an inspiration by his captain in the victory speech.

The Cork native paid tribute to the opposition before adding: “Our boys had one of those days when everything went right for them and we are absolutely delighted with our own performance.”
