Slaughtneil play Cuala in the All -Ireland hurling semi final in Armagh in a fortnight. I'm not going to rehash the achievements of this small club, you all know the story.
However I am going to ask you and your family to turn up at the Athletic Grounds for the match. Let's give Slaughtneill and Ulster hurling some support. Let's make this the biggest Hurling match in Ulster in 20 years.
Are you from a small club who aspire to succeed like Slaughtneil? Go to the match.
Are you a lifelong GAA man who has never gone to the hurling? Go to the match.
Are you a sporting romantic and lover of the underdog? Go to the match.
Would you love to see a hurling game in Ulster that the media couldn't ignore? Go to the match.
Are you likely to be doing nothing else anyway? Go to the match.
I'm not a Slaughtneil man, a Derry man or even a Hurling man, but I'm a Gaa man from a small rural club, and was priveliged to see Slaughtneil win over St Vincents in Newry yesterday. I wouldn't miss the next match for all the world, and full heartedly encourage you all to join me there.
