Advice: Jennifer O'Leary

1. Pack your gear bag and tape your hurleys the night before match day so you don't have to rush or worry on All-Ireland final day. It’s one less thing to think about.

2. Don't change your routine on the day of a match – eat what you normally eat, go through your normal routine and prepare as you would for any big championship game.

3. Have a motto or buzzword in your head/on your arm that refocuses you during the match if you need it, like ‘control the controllables’.

4. Take in the atmosphere, the faces and the excitement in Croke Park before you take to the field for your warm-up. You will need to concentrate on the game, the battle ahead and your team after this.

5. Sixty minutes can feel like 60 seconds in Croke Park so grab every opportunity and make it count.
