Quinn: We must learn from Dubs tie
30 May 2015 16:04
Michael Quinn wants Longford to use this Sunday’s clash with Dublin as a building block for the future of football in the county.
-
Whilst not conceding that the Leinster quarter-final is a damage-limitation exercise, the work-hungry forward says that experience gained in Croke Park can stand to Jack Sheedy’s side in the coming years.
-
League champions and All-Ireland favourites Dublin are practically unbackable for the game (4pm, live on RTÉ2) as they begin their quest for their tenth provincial title in 11 years.
-
But Quinn has his eye on the big picture and wants the younger members of the team to learn some lessons.
-
“Hopefully, if we address it with the right attitude and mentality, we can build on something in three or four years’ time when those young guys come into their peak then,” he said.
-
“We have to view it that it is going to be a learning curve and there are going to be things that we are doing right and things we might need to work on and do an awful lot better.
-
“But without playing the top four sides you don’t really know exactly where you are in comparison so it is going to be a learning curve.”
