Harding claimed a Leinster Championship medal that season before later winning an All-Ireland Championship medal after Wexford's shock win over Tipperary in the final. After a short-lived inter-county career, Harding continued to line out with Shelmaliers, with whom he won a second junior county championship title in 1966.
