Tipperary star forward Michael Quinlivan has come in for some serious praise from Oisin McConville ahead of the Premier County’s All-Ireland SFC qualifier meeting with Armagh.

The two counties clash in Thurles on Saturday evening for a place in Monday’s Round 4 draw and McConville feels it couldn’t be worse timing for his native county, with Quinlivan having returned from injury last weekend to help inspire Liam Kearns’ side to victory over Cavan.

“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,” the Crossmaglen man stated.

“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.

"I'd definitely rate him in the top four or five forwards in the country.”
