LISTEN: St Colmcille's bid for All-Ireland glory

On Sunday afternoon St Colmcille's will bid to become the first club from Meath to win an All-Ireland Club IFC title when they take on Mayo and Connacht champions Westport in Croke Park at 3.45.
Nobber and Wolfe Tones were crowned All-Ireland Club JFC champions in 2003 and 2004 respectively, but Meath have never been represented in the All-Ireland Club IFC decider before.
Walterstown are the only club from Meath to ever reach the All-Ireland Club SFC final having lost out in 1981 and 1984, but Sunday represents a great chance for another historic chapter in Meath GAA to be written.
Last Friday evening our reporter Fergal Lynch travelled tyo St Colmcille's home at Piltown and caught up with manager Colm Nally, incoming boss Des Lane and captain Ben Brennan to discuss Sunday's game and what it means to the parish.
