Jake Morris admits it has been a dream week for him after winning his second All-Ireland medal.

Six days after coming on as a sub in Tipperary's emphatic All-Ireland SHC final victory over Kilkenny at Croke Park, the Nenagh Éire Óg clubman scored 0-8 as the Premier County stormed past Cork at the LIT Gaelic Grounds in the All-Ireland U20HC final to complete a memorable double. Jerome Cahill and Paddy Cadell also featured in both successes.

"It's what dreams are made of to win two All-Irelands in one week," Morris told RTÉ.

"Many players go through their careers without winning any. I am very privileged to be part of two great set-ups. We have worked very hard in both set-ups.

"I was very focused all week in the build-up to this game. That said, it was difficult at times after the euphoria of last Sunday and in the first five minutes I was a bit leggy, getting used to the surroundings and all that.

"Look, I'm absolutely thrilled now; this has been the best week of my life."
