Quinn, Kevin Joseph, who died in Dublin on May 1, 2002, aged 79, was the last survivor of four brothers who represented Ireland at cricket. Kevin Quinn had won five Irish rugby caps by the time he received the first of his seven for cricket, in 1957. Three were in first-class games, in which he totalled 49 runs at 9.80; in all matches he made 171 runs, with a highest score of 43 in a one-day game against the 1958 New Zealanders, and took one wicket with his left-arm slows. Quinn's 25, opening the batting against Scotland at Dublin in 1957, was the second-highest score in a match in which the opposing spinners Frank Fee and David Livingstone took 12 and 11 wickets respectively and the Scottish keeper James Brown gained renown by equalling the world record of seven dismissals in an innings.
