THE QUINN family like tradition. And they have secured the name of Sean Quinn for another generation.

Sean Quinn Jr (34) – the only son of businessman Sean Quinn and his wife Patricia – has become a dad for the first time.

His wife Karen Woods has given birth to a baby boy – and new parents have named him Sean.

This is the fifth grandchild for the former billionaire – another grandchild is expected in July.

Legal representatives acting for Mr Quinn Jr told the High Court in November that the couple were expecting their first child.

The information was relayed in court as members of the Quinn family sought variations on orders freezing their assets.

In June of last year, Sean Quinn Jnr sold his Dublin home at Alder Lodge, Castleknock, in a bid to finally purge his contempt of court orders.

In July 2012, Mr Quinn Jnr was jailed for three months for contempt. He served the sentence in Mountjoy Prison. His father was jailed several months later for contempt.

Karen Woods and Sean Quinn Jnr married at St Mochta’s Church in Castleknock in May 2012.
