Quinn, 27, replaced Wes Hoolahan for the final 15 minutes as the Republic eased to a 4-0 win in Dublin in preparation for their World Cup qualifier with the Faroe Islands.

Tigers defender Paul McShane made his 30th appearance for his country and played the full 90 minutes at right-back, while midfielder David Meyler was an unused substitute.

Quinn joined Hull from Sheffield United last summer and helped them return to the Barclays Premier League in his first season.
