€300m is seven tonnes of gold. If he stashed it Tom McFeely style, I hope he used a ground floor bathroom. https://fc07.deviantart.net/fs24/f/2007/323/e/6/The_Falling_Portal_Man_by_joodude.gif

IBRC has been getting copies of Quinns’ emails since 2012.

A good lesson on why “anonymous” email isn’t.

It is a pretty far fetched claim that the Quinn’s have managed to hide €500m in liquid assets.

Just seeing this now.
5000 people attended a rally in Cavan in support of Sean Quinn.
Working 10 hours a day these folks could get through the tapes in 4 days.

Ms. Harty must be delighted with this. I wonder who gave the reporter that little gem :smiley:

Start of the Quinn resurrection?


#1720

So a trio of business men with links to Quinn are getting into car insurance and another consortium with links to Quinn - who have taken Quinn on as a consultant - are taking on his old cement business.

Yes, people probably are saying that. They are probably adding that if this money were to be from the Quinn family then it must be money that he sheltered from IBRC’s attempt to get some money back for the state.

No doubt people were very glad when the Quinn Group brought jobs to former employment black spots but they would forgive him anything. It’s like a cult.

Sean good, ‘Dublin’ bad. People in that part of the country reckon everything that went right for Quinn was entirely of his making and everything that went wrong was the fault of someone else.

They are like a sinfully proud mother blinded by the sun shining from the underside of their can-do-no-wrong golden boy. “He just fell in with the wrong crowd.” He was the freaking kingpin, Mr Q.
