Jake Morris admits that winning two All-Irelands inside a week is a dream come true.

Morris came off the bench to play his part as Tipperary defeated Kilkenny in the Liam MacCarthy Cup decider last Sunday week before playing a leading role in the Premier County’s All-Ireland U20 final victory over Cork on Saturday:

“I don’t think I can sum that week up. It is something you dream of when you are a young lad,” he told The Irish Examiner. “Like, to have done the double is absolutely unbelievable, unreal. It is what dreams are made of. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to top this week. It has been the best week of my life.

“I have the four medals now — minor, U20, U21, and senior — and I am absolutely delighted with that. I hope a famine doesn’t come for me. I was very privileged to be part of two unbelievable groups this year, headed up by Liam Cahill and Liam Sheedy. I count myself very lucky, to be honest with you, as many players go through their careers without winning any.”
