Launching a Shell Script using a Global Shortcut on OSX Snow Leopard Ask

quick background: I'm a selenium Certification developer, mainly Web, but with some experience in old skool VBA, WinForms, some WPF, and a lot of Services.
I have a shell script, which I launch several times during work everyday. I do this by launching terminal, and launching the script from within. However, I would like to be able to launch it (from within a terminal) with a global OSX keyboard shortcut (Cmd+Shift+R say).

There are quite a few applications which work in this manner already (for eg. EverNote, RemindMeLater, even the default Cmd-Space which brings up the search utility) and hence, I am guessing this should be at least theoretically possible.

Could someone please tell me if and how this can be done?
