FALLEN tycoon Sean Quinn Snr made a rare public appearance at a GAA match at the weekend.

The 65-year-old had not been seen in public since his release from prison in early January.

Friends say his ongoing legal battle with the former Anglo Irish Bank has 'taken its toll' on Mr Quinn.

Mr Quinn was at Brewster Park in Enniskillen on Saturday night to watch his native Fermanagh take on Monaghan. The visitors won by 0-14 to 0-12.

"He appeared to be in good form," said one fan. "He was laughing and chatting away and people were going up to him all the time to shake his hand."

It was the first game involving Fermanagh that the former Quinn Group boss attended this year.

Last week his wife Patricia and their five children – Sean Jnr, Collette, Ciara, Aoife and Brenda – began a new High Court case in an effort to be allowed to continue their case following new legislation liquidating IBRC.

The laws passed by the Oireachtas put a stay on all existing legal actions against the former Anglo Irish Bank.
