Social Media Reaction – Slaughtneil salutations


Slaughtneil are one step closer to recording an incredible double in senior mens codes, following yesterday’s six point win over Killyclogher in the Ulster Club Senior Football Championship semi-final.

Having won the Ulster senior Hurling title three weeks ago, the Robert Emmets will win the historic double if they beat Kilcoo in the Ulster Senior Football Club Championship final in a fortnight’s time.

On the evidence of their performance against Kilcoo, few will bet against Slaughtneil winning the Ulster football title, and making dual history. They are odds on favourites with the bookies to win the competition outright.

After they comfortably dismantled the challenge of Cargin, Tyrone champions Killyclogher went into the game with the hope that they could turn over the Derry winners. But they were outplayed, and their star man Mark Bradley was well marshalled by Slaughtneil defender Karl McKaigue.

The response to their win was exultant, as fans used Twitter to further remind us of the Slaughtneil players’ great achievement of succeeding in two codes.


Kilcoo were leading this poll at the start of the week. Have you voted?

The Derry club have accepted Mickey Moran's decision to step down.

Slaughtneil were lavished with praise by fans on Social media.
