Ciaran Corrigan may play his club football with St Mary's, Maguiresbridge in the relative lowlands of Division Two in the Fermanagh All-County League but that has not stopped him from making a smooth transition to the high plains of inter-county fare.
And while his immediate target is to see Maguiresbridge take a step up into Division One, the 24-year-old is prepared to help shoulder a dual burden when inter-county action resumes in October.
Not only will Ryan McMenamin's side strive to avoid making the drop into Division Three when they face Clare and Laois in their two outstanding league ties, but they must also confront Down in the Ulster Championship quarter-finals.
The pressure with which Fermanagh are confronted right now is in rather sharp contrast to the optimism and buoyancy that prevailed within the county when the team reached the Ulster senior final just two years ago.
Donegal proved the victors on that occasion but hopes remained high that the Erne men could build on the progress they had made.
But that has not proven to be the case. Indeed, there is the strong possibility that by the time they square up to Down in Brewster Park, Enniskillen, their opponents will have already been promoted to Division Two - a development that is likely to further galvanise their hopes of progress in the Championship.
Fermanagh's inconsistency, meanwhile, has proved their undoing in the league to date, but with the likelihood that he will have a stronger squad at his disposal, manager McMenamin is optimistic that his side will rise to what will be a formidable challenge.
The all-action Corrigan is among a group of players who retained their form on an ongoing basis until the curtain came down on the league in March and is hopeful that the Erne outfit can now make up lost ground.
"We have probably left ourselves quite a bit to do in the league but it's up to us to try and put things right if we can," says Corrigan, whose ability to link defence and attack has been proving a key element of Fermanagh's strategy in the recent past.
Along with other relative newcomers such as Ultan Kelm, Jonny Cassidy and Kane Connor, he has helped to add sparkle to the team's play.
"We would like to retain our position in Division Two, that would be important," points out Corrigan.
"This would keep us playing in a higher standard of football and that can prove a help when the championship comes round. For now, though, the two remaining league games and the Ulster fixture with Down are top of our agenda.
"We are keen to make an impression in these games for the sake of our supporters and, indeed, for the good of Fermanagh football."
Fermanagh may have given their supporters something to cheer about in the summer of 2018 but recalibrating such enthusiasm and fervour might prove difficult.
McMenamin makes no bones about the magnitude of the task confronting his side, nor indeed the pressures that a lot of teams might encounter in the unfamiliar sudden-death atmosphere of championship football in winter.
"I felt from the outset that the provincial and All-Ireland championships might have to be delayed or cancelled altogether, but the fact that a fixtures programme has been drawn up gives us all something to aim at, the coronavirus permitting," states McMenamin.
"Obviously our two league games will be first up and we will be trying hard to avoid relegation if we can before we go on to meet Down in the Ulster Championship.
"It will be a difficult double mission but, when you look at it, every team will be confronted by a new ball game."
For his part, Corrigan believes that Fermanagh's blend of old and relatively new faces could prove a potent mix when the chips are down.
"We have left ourselves with a deal to do in the league but I think if we bring a positive mind-set to the table we can maybe do ourselves justice," he concludes.
