Oisin McConville Seriously Rates Tipp's Michael Quinlivan

On Saturday evening, in round three of the All-Ireland qualifiers, Armagh and Tipperary face each other for the second time in 2017.

Earlier this year, when they faced each other in the league, there was also something on the line: promotion to Divison Two. That was claimed by Tipperary on the day, largely due to a late goal by Tipp's Michael Quinlivan.


Armagh All-Ireland winner Oisin McConville was at that game back in April and remembers well the damage done by Quinlivan.

Speaking at an event for the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Championships, McConville ranked the 24-year-old as one of the top five forwards in the land.

I think he had six or seven touches that day and I think he finished with 3-1. He has everything, the lad has everything.

As I said, it's bad timing [for Armagh] that he's coming back to fitness because he actually looked okay when he came on the last day [vs Cavan].

He's one of the best around, I think. He's just got it all. He's a complete modern-day footballer.

It's a pity in a way that Tipperary don't have a stronger midfield and that he's being asked to fill that role. It's almost a Michael Murphy-type situation.

He has everything. He's quality. I'd definitely rate him in the top four or five forwards in the country.

Electric Ireland Minor Star Award ambassadors Dónal Óg Cusack and Oisín McConville are calling on the public to log on to the Electric Ireland Facebook page and get involved in the Player of the Week voting as the final stages of the GAA Minor season begin. The Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Awards, which will take place in Croke Park on the 7th October 2017, aim to recognise the achievements and accolades of Minor GAA players.
