That’s one hell of a journey.

It takes an awful amount of effort for a club to make it to the finals of the AIB GAA All-Ireland Club Championships on Paddy’s Day and an awful amount of effort from every player involved.

Every single player lining out in Croke Park tomorrow will have put in an unbelievable amount of hard work and dedication to get there, but if one player sums up what it takes, then it’s Alan Cuddihy of Ballyhale Shamrocks.

Alan had to move to London for work last year, but it hasn’t dimmed his commitment to his home club in any way; it’s just made the journey home for training and matches that little bit longer.

Before the clash with Kilmallock tomorrow, Alan’s teammates, his manager and Alan himself spoke about what he’s had to do to commit to the Ballyhale cause and why it’s all worthwhile.
