An emotional Sean Quinn walked through the streets of Ballyconnell this evening to cheers and applause from the thousands of people who turned up to take part in a second rally held in his honour.
With his wife Patricia by his side and the rest of his family following on behind the former businessman was visibly emotional as he made his way towards the stage at the top of the town.
His daughter Ciara and brother Peter addressed the crowd, along with GAA figures Mickey Harte, Rory Gallagher and representatives from lobby group, Concerned Irish Citizens.
