Peter Darragh Quinn intends staying in Northern Ireland and "won't be going back" to face the prospect of jail in the Republic, according to his father, Peter Quinn senior.

In an exclusive interview with the Impartial Reporter, Mr. Quinn says that his son isn't fearful of prison, but believes that he has no chance of getting "fair play or justice" because of the corrupt way the authorities have handled the Quinn case.

While his cousin, Sean Quinn junior is in Mountjoy prison after appearing in court in Dublin on July 20, Peter Darragh Quinn failed to appear at the same court.

He resurfaced in public for the first time in Kinawley on Friday evening for the Fermanagh championship match when he was photographed by a national newspaper alongside his father.

Peter Quinn senior hits out at what he believes is a conspiracy in the Republic against his family and says that although Peter Darragh Quinn is "under a lot of pressure", his family is fully behind his decision to stay in Northern Ireland.
