Slaughtneil captain Cormac O’Doherty could miss Sunday’s Ulster Club Hurling semi-final against Dunloy, according to boss Michael McShane.

O’Doherty sustained a shoulder injury in the Derry final and hasn’t played since.

“Cormac hasn’t hit a ball in a few weeks now and the shoulder has been slow to heal,” said McShane. “Right now I don’t know if he’ll make it. If he doesn’t, that will be a massive loss for us, but we have other players who can come in and do a job for us.”

It’s a big weekend for Slaughtneil, with their camogs also in semi-final action when they face Oulart The Ballagh of Wexford in the All-Ireland Club Championship, with their clash having been brought forward to 12pm so fans can attend both games.

“This is a massive weekend for Slaughtneil,” added McShane.

“Take the Bradleys, Gerald is a key player for the hurlers, his sister Jolene is goalkeeper for the camogie team. They’re just one of many households who will be hoping to double up and make both games on Sunday.”
