Willie Quinlan says it’s very difficult for Naomh Eoin Myshall to mix both hurling and football at the highest level with the same players.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of this weekends club matches, Willie thinks that mixing both codes with the same players is more than likely to have a detrimental effect.
“This year, looking at the League it looks like Mount Leinster Rangers are going to put everything into the hurling”, says Quinlan.
“I have seen Naomh Eoin playing (this week) against Grange – I am involved in Grange this year myself – and they played really, really good football. They moved the ball very very well with two very strong midfielders, lots of pace. They can get scores from anywhere, but again it could put them under pressure when they are trying to mix both codes.”
“It’s very difficult to do at a top level and what really happens is your half doing the football and half doing the hurling. It’s the same bunch of guys that are playing both hurling and football but it’s very difficult to mix both of them.”
