Vote used to back Quinn

SEVERAL voters in the border regions used the referendum as a rallying call of support for Sean Quinn.

Dozens of votes were spoiled with remarks calling for his release from prison and for 'fair play' for the jailed businessman.

Voters in the Cavan-Monaghan constituency and in Roscommon-South Leitrim voiced their anger at the jailing of Quinn. Slogans included 'We want fair play for Sean Quinn' and 'Free Sean Quinn'.
