Joe Brolly has earmarked him as the last great entertainer in the game. 'The pot belly. The shimmy. The sense of devil may care.' Brolly's column in Gaelic Life last week marked out Quigley as the giant panda of the GAA. An endangered species that we should ensure does not disappear.
Quigley's performance against Dublin delighted more than just Fermanagh fans. Pushing Cluxton into the net to score a goal endeared him to all but Dublin fans and then even the Hill were smiling when they saw his reaction to the goal on the big screen.
In the aftermath of the eight point defeat, Quigley came to sum up Fermanagh in the minds of many. When he filmed some of his teammates having a singsong on the way home from Croke Park, quite a bit of criticism was directed at the Ulster side.
Quigley already gave his reaction to some of that criticism but now he responded directly to Jim McGuinness who accused Fermanagh of lacking ambition in his much discussed Irish Times article this week.
The Fermanagh star has dismissed McGuinness' claims by pointing to the fact that his teammates were celebrating a relatively successful season, not the the eight point defeat to Dublin.
I think to be fair to Jim, it’s just something for him to put in the paper.
We were celebrating the fact that we got promotion, we got a great run in the championship and we got to an All-Ireland quarter-final. And which, I guarantee you, if you’d predicted that at the start of the year to Jim McGuinness, he’d have laughed at you. So it’s a wee bit patronising, coming from him.
McGuinness' column earlier this week was widely praised but when you hear Quigley speak about what it means for Fermanagh to have a day out at Croke Park and test themselves against the top teams in the country, it's difficult to denigrate them for enjoying themselves in the aftermath of their Championship exit.
