Anthony Nash says Cork won their 53rd Munster SHC title the hard by beating Tipperary, Waterford and Clare.
"We're after coming up the hardest route you can come through, a quarter-final, semi-final and final against three unbelievably tough teams," the Cork goalkeeper told RTE.
"We just had to be at the peak of out powers on those three days and fortunately enough we were.
"We're one step closer, we've got one massive game coming up in five weeks and we don't know who we're going to be facing so the people of Cork will enjoy tonight and we're going to refocus.
"We want to make amends for 2014, but we're going to be ready to go."
