PETER Quinn has angrily defended his brother Sean and hit out at the former Anglo Irish Bank, the media and politicians.
Addressing the thousands of people who turned up at today's pro-Quinn rally the accountant and former president of the GAA likened the bank to the 'SAS'.
"I want to know how Anglo were able to come into Derrylin to a company which they hadn't lent a penny? Why did they seize that company in an operation that was reminiscent of the SAS? And where I come from we know how the SAS operates."
He asked the crowds in Ballyconnell: "Why has the new management moved its headquarters away? Where is the justice in allowing a bank keep a man in prison?"
He claimed that Quinn Glass now operates in Manchester and the headquarters has moved to Dublin.
"There will be no new jobs or projects under Anglo," said Mr Quinn, who called for his brother Sean to be reinstated to the Quinn Group.
On the dispute with IBRC, the new name for thr Anglo Irish Bank, he said: "There is absolutely no evidence that the share prices are legal but there are plenty of evidence that they are not. Some day a court will decide on that."
Mr Quinn hit out at the media for not 'thoroughly investigating' the case and the politicians for 'ignoring' it.

I can almost see Peter Quinn's notes from the night before:
Action point 1: Whip up a good bit of the old 'us and them' paranoia. Drag the British Army into it for a bit of seige mentality. Have a right old go at the BBC - sure they're Brits too so they must be sectarian and everything they say is lies.
Action Point 2: Throw in a bit of swearing once the wellies are stamping and see can you get a bit of yahowing from the back.
What he's failed to appreciate, of course, is that this is particularly short-sighted, since it will only confirm to the rest of Ireland that the culchies and the nordies are up in arms again and ignoring the laws of both jurisdictions as they always have.
