Inter-county

Quinn first came to prominence on the inter-county scene at under-age levels with Clare playing at all levels. He played minor and under-21 for three years. [2]

He made his senior debut for Clare in a National Hurling League game against Meath in 2002 and later became a regular impact substitute during the subsequent championship campaign. In spite of losing their opening game, Clare surprised the hurling world by qualifying for the All-Ireland final. Quinn came on as a substitute once again as his side put up a good fight against Kilkenny. A combined tally of 2-13 for Henry Shefflin and D. J. Carey gave "the Cats" a seven-point victory. In 2003 he started at full forward in Clare's Munster championship win over Tipperary scoring 1-2. [3]

Quinn continued to line out with Clare for the next few seasons contesting a league final in 2005 and an all Ireland semifinal later that year, only to lose to a late Cork rally. He called time on his inter-county career following the team's exit from the 2007 championship and went on to win a championship with Tulla.[ citation needed ]
