Mossy Quinn calls time on Dublin career
The St Vincent’s clubman has decided to make himself unavailable to new manager Jim Gavin.

MOSSY QUINN HAS retired from intercounty football after almost a decade in the blue of Dublin.

The St Vincent’s forward confirmed the decision today on Twitter, writing: “It’s been a childhood dream to play for Dublin for last 10 years, but time to go. It was a great journey & I loved every second.”

The full forward — who was the Dubs’ regular free-taker — made his debut in 2003.

Quinn retires with an All-Ireland medal, won in 2011 as Pat Gilroy’s side dramatically beat Kerry in the championship decider, as well as having half a dozen provincial titles.

But he has now decided to make himself unavailable to the new manager Jim Gavin.
