Longford will be missing Michael Quinn for the crucial NFL clash against Derry at Celtic Park this Saturday, throw-in 4.30pm. 

With his wife Kate after giving birth to a baby girl recently, Michael is not available to play for the county seniors at this moment in time and the absence of the Killoe clubman is a blow for manager Padraic Davis. 

Quinn is very much a key figure on the Longford team who need to beat Derry to keep their promotion hopes alive in Division 3 on their return to competitive action for the first time in over seven months in the midst of the recurring coronavirus fears.
