IT is thought Peter Quinn will address the next pro-Quinn rally, which is due to take place in Ballyconnell on October 14.

Organisers, Concerned Irish Citzens, say they are hopeful that Sean Quinn's brother will speak out to highlight his family's situation and the economic downturn. A number of high profile speakers will be in attendance along with a large representation from the Quinn family.

The rescheduled rally entitled 'Justice for the Quinn family' will be the second in a series of rallies organised to show the widespread support that remains in the Fermanagh/Cavan area for the Quinns. Those behind the event say there will be a "special announcement" on the day. Having been contacted by a number of other interested groups, including: 'People for Economic Justice' and 'The Anti Eviction Task Force' who will be present at the rally, a spokesperson for Concerned Irish Citizens said the rally will be "written into the history books".

"Concerned Irish Citizens is growing in popularity and is expanding at an incredible rate and is now fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. Injustice, bullying, intimidation and downright corruption can only prevail if enough good people do nothing. It is very clear to us that there are more than enough good people who are not prepared to facilitate further harassment and corruption such as that being dished out to the Quinn family and many others," said the spokesperson.

It comes as pledges of up to €2 million have been made to help the family pursue their legal battle with the former Anglo Irish Bank. The money is thought to have been donated by a number of individuals and businesses.
