Chrissy McKaigue was a happy man after Slaughtneil completed an unprecedented 'double treble' yesterday.

For the second year in-a-row, the remarkable Derry club have completed a treble of provincial senior football, senior hurling and senior camogie successes, and Mickey Moran's footballers now have their sights firmly fixed on making amends for last season's All-Ireland final defeat to Dr Crokes.

"I don't think what we've achieved will ever be done again," the star centre back told the Irish Daily Star after the Ulster final win over Cavan Gaels.

"Maybe this wasn't a great game or one of our best performances, but we don't care about that, it has helped us achieve something truly great - a double treble.

"Last year was our first year going into a dual All-Ireland campaign so we probably made mistakes in our preparation, but it was all a learning curve, We will be a lot wiser this time around."

Next up for Slaughtneil is an All-Ireland club SFC semi-final against Nemo Rangers next February, and what a game that should be.
