O'Doherty the hero for Ulster aces

AIB CLUB SFC SEMI-FINAL: AUSTIN STACKS V SLAUGHTNEIL

Cormac O'Doherty was the hero after his 56th-minute point gave Slaughtneil a maiden AIB All-Ireland club final place at the expense of Austin Stacks yesterday..

The corner-forward struck decisively from around 30 metres out to decide a cracking contest that was level four times in the second-half.

The influence of All Star Kerry full-forward Kieran Donaghy (left) was huge early on and he won two penalties, which Stacks converted.

But, in heavy conditions in Portlaoise, the Ulster champions pushed on for success with a strong second-half display and will now face Corofin of Galway in the St Patrick's Day decider.
