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.
