Before 2012, Slaughtneil hadn't won a Derry senior camogie championship.

On Sunday, they will go in search of fourth All-Ireland title on the spin.  

The club, located near Maghera, are continuing to make their mark, not only in camogie, but also in men's and women's football.

Slaughtneil is located in poor farmland at the foot of the Carntogher mountain.  There is no church or pub – the club is a centre in the area. 

In 2017, they had three teams that headed to Croker on finals day. 

2020 will see Gráinne Ní Chatháin lead the senior camogie side into battle against Galway's Sarsfields on Jones' Road.

It's a repeat of the 2017 and '18 deciders, both won by the Derry champions.

Last year Wexford's St Martin's were the vanquished as the hat-trick was achieved.   

Slaughtneil are 60 minutes or so from becoming the second side to complete the four-in-a-row.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport's Marie Crowe, the Slaughtneil captain outlined why the desire is still there within the squad to add to their trophy haul.

"We are a very motivated team and are lucky that we have the calibre of players we do have to get back to our fourth All-Ireland final," said Ní Chatháin.

"At times you give out that you're training constantly. We are all competitive people. We like to be active, we like to keep fit. Whenever you're together as a team it just makes those things easier.

"If we hadn't camogie, what else would we doing?

"It's nice to come together as a group of players where you are focusing on the same goals in trying to make each other better, making the team better, and the sense that you are doing it for the community.  

"Getting out of Derry is not easy. The standard of camogie in the county has improved and it's even harder now to get out of the province.

"You have to up your game after winning an All-Ireland. You don't take the foot off the pedal. 

"And new we have new girls coming into the panel. That has motivated me. We saw their energy, their buzz, their hunger to get onto the panel. It was refreshing to see those girls coming through with such energy."

Ni Chatháin also paid tribute to the many coaches in the club who dedicate so much of their time.

"There's a huge emphasis on underage in the club and it's down to those managers that are happy to put in the hours of hard work over a number of years," she added.

"The success doesn't happen overnight.

"Before 2012 we were getting beaten off the pitch. And then we had the heartache of getting beaten in Ulster.

"What are we missing? What have we to improve on?

"Brilliant management teams that focused on specific game-plans helped us a lot. 

"We made the breakthrough in Ulster. That was a real achievement - a real goal for the whole club."
