Back in 2001, a fresh-faced Kieran Fitzgerald won an All-Ireland medal and an All Star award in a memorable debut season for Galway.

Fast-forward 18 years and the evergreen defender is still going strong for his club Corofin who completed a seven-in-a-row of Galway SFC titles at the expense of Tuam Stars in yesterday's replayed final. The 38-year-old began his club career just after Corofin won the All-Ireland club SFC title in 1998 and has since garnered a record-breaking 14 Galway SFC medals. He has also won three All-Ireland club SFC titles in the last four years and you wouldn't bet against him adding to that tally next spring. 

For the record, Fitzgerald has won Galway SFC medals in the following years - 1998, 2000, '02, '06, '08, '09, '11, '13, '14, '15, '16, '17, '18 and '19.
