Gráinne Ní Chatháin says Slaughtneil have been keeping a lid on any talk of four successive All-Ireland club camogie titles.

The inimitable Derry and Ulster champions defeated St Martin's of Wexford at snowy Croke Park to complete an amazing three-in-a-row last March and they return to HQ on Sunday to lock horns with Sarsfields of Galway in this year’s senior decider:

“It would mean everything and I don’t think we as players fully appreciate how far we have come. Maybe the community actually do appreciate that more than us,” Ní Chatháin told sponsors AIB. “We are still focusing on match-to-match rather than seeing the full picture. The four-in-a-row doesn’t be talked about or be discussed in training, but to do something like that would be amazing.

“Even if we get beaten next week, we have done amazing work. But, everyone just wants more, more, more.

“I’m expecting a real fight. A physical battle and it will go right down to the final whistle. We have met each other before so we know what to expect and it has been tight in the other two games we have played. I’m expecting that they will come out for revenge and it’ll be a good hard game.”
