This video compilation is a throwback to the halcyon amateur days of rugby union and is a showcase for the skills of our one and only Mick Quinn.

Supported by some Lansdowne club greats, Barbarians and fellow Ireland players, this glorious video is a reminder of when the game was played by men who played at the highest level, yet held down full time day jobs. What a different time that was!

One of the clips features a Lansdowne FC 7s playing in the renowned Middlesex 7s tournament. The 1980 tournament was the centenary of Middlesex RFU and Lansdowne FC had the honour of being the only non-British team to be invited to play.

The Lansdowne FC squad for the Middlesex 7s on Saturday 3rd May, 1980 was:

  1. B. Winkworth
  2. R. Moroney
  3. M. Quinn
  4. V. Becker
  5. M. Keane
  6. M. MacWhite
  7. V. Ryan
  8. P. Boylan
  9. G. Nyham

Thank you to Mark MacWhite for sharing the images of the match day programme. See the gallery below.
