Keith Quinn (born 22 September 1988) is a footballer who last played for Shelbourne in the League of Ireland. He is the younger brother of retired footballer Alan Quinn and Stephen Quinn who plays for Reading

Playing career[edit]

Along with brother Stephen, Keith Quinn followed eldest brother Alan to England when he transferred to Sheffield United. Having captained the youth team at The Blades he progressed to becoming a regular fixture in the reserve team.[2] In March 2009 Quinn was loaned to Central Coast Mariners in Australia's A League. This was a somewhat strange move, as the A League was not in season during Quinn's loan, and Quinn could not play in the Asian Champions League as he registered too late.[3] After failing to make a first team appearance for the Blades he was released at the end of the 2008–09 season.[4]

Quinn returned to Ireland to continue his career with Leinster Senior League side Bluebell United before signing professionally with League of Ireland club Sporting Fingal in January 2010.

He signed for First Division side Waterford United on the 19th of December to play for the 2011 season.

He joined Monaghan United in the summer transfer window and made 13 appearances scoring 1 goal. In December he agreed to stay on at the club in 2012. On 18 June 2012, the club announced their withdrawal from the League of Ireland and all of their playing staff were released by the club. August 2012 Quinn signs for Cork City .[5]

After just three appearances for Cork, he signed for Longford Town in January 2013. He was released by Longford after one season.
