Slaughtneil assistant manager John Joe Kearney says the Ulster champions will revel in the pressure of appearing in their first All-Ireland club final.

The Derry club take on Galway side Corofin in the Croke Park decider on St Patrick's Day.

"Half the team have already graced Croke Park - they will not be in awe of it," said Kearney.

"It's every player's dream to play in Croke Park and they will not be phased by it, as they are a grounded bunch."

Slaughtneil set up a meeting with Corofin after coming from five points down to defeat Austin Stacks in the semi-finals.

Kearney has indicated that forward Christopher Bradley, who sustained a broken collarbone in the game, will likely be on the substitute's bench on Tuesday.

Vital to securing a first All-Ireland title will be containing a dangerous Corofin attack, and in particular Michael Lundy.

"I'm expecting a fast-flowing game, they move the ball out of defence very quickly," said Kearney.

"They have an exceptionally good full-forward line, while young Lundy is a speed merchant.

"He may be a bit one-sided, going on to his left, but he will need a lot of attention.

"He had a very good game in the semi-finals - he made scores, took scores and is a very capable player."
