Credit to IBRC in bid to pursue Quinn millions
THE fallout from the collapse in all but name of the Irish banking system will be played out in civil and criminal courts in Ireland and elsewhere for years to come. The Irish population is largely immune to various revelations after six years of scandal and austerity as well as mass emigration and unemployment.
The jailing, two years ago, of former billionaire Sean Quinn, his son Sean Jnr and his nephew Peter Darragh Quinn – who evaded jail by skipping the country – represented a high watermark in public outrage.
That outcry was eclipsed by revelations contained in last year's Anglo Tapes published in the Irish Independent.
