Corofin’s high standards are set by the players, according to Kieran Molloy.

The Galway and Connacht champions are aiming for third All-Ireland Club SFC in-a-row and will renew acquaintances with Nemo Rangers in a semi-final clash on January 4.

In a wide-ranging interview with, Molloy revealed:  “It is massively player-driven.

“If you're not doing something right at training then you do get called out by one of the players. It doesn't take the management to call you out.

“If the drill is not going great, the players will reset the drill and say, look, sort it out. It is massively player-driven, yeah.

“At underage in the club the focus is all on the skills and getting those right. But when you get to senior then there's a huge appetite for success. It's not even so much about winning games, it's about getting into the team ahead of the lad that you're competing against for the jersey.

“That's where the competitive edge comes from, and that's why I feel we're so successful.”
