Mr Paddy McKillen – Correction
Published 14/07/2014 | 02:30
A story in last Friday's edition of the Irish Independent referring to interviews with Mr Paddy McKillen and Mr Derek Quinlan published in 'Vanity Fair' magazine contained a number of inaccuracies in relation to Mr McKillen.
A number of comments attributed to Mr McKillen should have been attributed to Mr Quinlan.
It was Mr Quinlan and not Mr McKillen who had a triple bypass operation and who stated that he does not see himself living in Ireland again.
'Vanity Fair' was also referring to Mr Quinlan when it said he had never publicly discussed his ruin or exile.
We have been asked to clarify that Mr McKillen's loans were never in NAMA and have always been fully performing. He also repaid all of his IBRC loans in full earlier this year.
We are happy to clarify these matters and apologise unreservedly for any distress caused to Mr McKillen and his family.
