GAA World Rejoices For Slaughtneil As They KO St. Vincent's In All-Ireland Semi-Final

GAA World Rejoices For Slaughtneil As They KO St. Vincent's In All-Ireland Semi-Final

Derry champions Slaughtneil upset Dublin champions St. Vincent's in today's All-Ireland club football semi-final on a scoreline of 0-12 to 0-10.

Vincent's went into the game as favourites, looking to progress to their first All-Ireland final since they won the competition in 2014.

The Dublin side went into half time with one point lead, 0-6 to 0-5. It was after the break where Slaughtneil took control. Chrissy McKaigue, named TG4's Man of the Match, was the inspiration for Slaughtneil. Playing centre-back, McKaigue marked Diarmuid Connolly out of the game and also scored four points himself.

Before they consider the All-Ireland final on March 17th, Slaughtneil have to negotiate another semi-final against another Dublin team. The club take on Cuala in the All-Ireland club hurling semi-final on February 25th.

McKaigue told TG4 during his Man of the Match interview that it will be strange having a hurley back in his hand again.

We'll have the full emphasis on the hurling now. I'm not sure how it'll go having the hurl back in my hand. We'll give it a lash anyway.

The love for Slaughtneil's achievement has been almost universal, bar the odd person in north Dublin.
