David Moran says Kerry will get to enjoy their semi-final win for "about 20 minutes" as they face into a daunting challenge against Dublin in the All-Ireland final.
The 30-year old midfielder - who won All-Ireland titles in 2009 and 2014 - was an influential presence again as Kerry overturned a four-point half-time deficit to sink Mickey Harte's Tyrone.
It's the first time Kerry have been in an All-Ireland final since 2015 but Moran says they won't have much time to reflect on the achievement.
"It would have been the aim at the start of the year. We haven't been here since 2015," Moran told RTÉ Sport afterwards.
"We'll probably enjoy this semi-final for about 20 minutes and then we'll have a mammoth task to look forward to."
Moran pinpointed their improved scoring efficiency in the second half as central to the turnaround.
"We felt we had plenty of chances in the first half to have gone in closer than we were. We just didn't take them.
"We take pride in the forward line we have and would have been disappointed with the chances we didn't convert. That was a big thing - we needed to convert the chances we created.
"We just needed to up it. We weren't happy with our first half performance. But the second half went well. Subs came in and made a big difference which is great."
Moran and second half substitute Tommy Walsh are the only two survivors from the 2009 All-Ireland victory, with only five of today's starting line-up featuring in the 2014 final win over Donegal.
The team is heavily populated with young players from Kerry's recent underage bonanza. Moran's key word of advice to the young players - don't let it pass you by.
"You're trying to enjoy it. It's very hard. It's 80 minutes in the same dimensions as it was today. You're just trying to make sure the occasions doesn't pass them by. Just get on enough ball and make sure the game doesn't pass you by.
"There's no point getting too excited here. In Kerry, you want to win All-Irelands. We have a huge task now trying to stop Dublin.
"Everybody dreams about winning All-Irelands. It's going to come no tougher than this but we'll give it a lash.
