Dearbhail McDonald: Cold comfort for ex-tycoon as his day in court approaches

SEAN QUINN Jnr is unlikely to draw too much comfort from the reasons handed down from the Supreme Court which upheld a three-month jail term he has served for his contempt of court.

It will provide even less comfort for his bankrupt father Sean Quinn Snr, whose own D-Day is fast approaching.

Next Thursday, Sean Quinn Snr will find out whether he will be jailed for breaking court orders not to interfere with the family's €500m strong International Property Group (IPG) and, critically, if he has done enough to purge his contempt.
