The likes of Kieran Fitzgerald and Gary Sice have set the standards for their Corofin team-mates, according to Martin Farragher.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s eagerly-anticipated All-Ireland Club SFC clash with Dr Crokes, the team’s full-forward also highlighted how a well-run underage section has laid the foundations for the great run of success that the club has enjoyed on the county, provincial and national stages.

“We've a serious underage structure there,”  the 24-year-old told the Irish Independent. “The likes of Frank Morris have been there from day one. There's a video of him coaching underage back in 1998.

“I suppose a lot of the lads he was coaching then that are probably on the team now. Kieran Fitzgerald has been around the block, he's been through everything in terms of club football at this stage. And Gary Sice, these are lads we take inspiration from.

“We used to watch them and now we're playing with them. It's a dream come true.”
