'Star' to propel Stacks to club final berth

AUSTIN STACKS V SLAUGHTNEIL (TG4 4.0 TOMORROW)

NO team can claim to be brandishing quite as many scalps as Slaughtneil.

They beat Ulster holders, Ballinderry, in their own county final and have taken Cavan Gaels, St Eunan's and Omagh out in the mean time.

Austin Stacks haven't had nearly so treacherous a path, eventually taking first time Cork champions, Ballncollig after extra-time before seeing off The Nire in the Munster decider.

Neither is saturated with county stardust either but in Kieran Donaghy (pictured), Stacks have a very obvious match-winner, a rejuvenated big game player capable of having an effect in a number of positions, according to the setup of the opposition.
