DAVID O'CALLAGHAN may be in the form of his life, and Dublin may have created hurling history this summer, but 'Dotsy' still wants more.

And the long-serving Dublin forward is adamant that he and his Sky Blue comrades will have to eclipse even their Leinster final masterclass to topple Cork and claim a place in the All-Ireland SHC final.

"Ultimately, the further you go in the championship, you're going to have to play better and better," O'Callaghan told the Herald ahead of Sunday's semi-final showdown in Croke Park.

 

BUZZ

"The performance the next day is going to have to go up again because it's an All-Ireland semi-final.

"I don't know, hopefully we can improve on our performance, because I think we're going to have to."

O'Callaghan added that spirits are high in the Dublin squad as they prepare for Sunday's showdown with the Leesiders.

"There's a great buzz in the squad and a great unity there," the St Mark's sharpshooter said.

"I'm really enjoying being a part of it."
