Peter Darragh Quinn 'spotted in North'29/07/2012 - 13:52:25
Peter Darragh Quinn has reportedly been sighted for the first time since a warrant was issued for his arrest just over one week ago.
The nephew of bankrupt businessman Seán Quinn is reported to have attended a Fermanagh GAA match in the North.
Peter Darragh Quinn was sentenced to three months in jail for contempt of court on July 20 and a warrant for his arrest was issued after he failed to appear at the High Court sentencing.
However, the warrant is only valid in the Republic of Ireland and the PSNI cannot legally intervene.
Supporters of the Quinn family are holding a rally in the Cavan village of Ballyconnell this evening.
Rodney Edwards, a journalist with the Impartial Reporter newspaper in Fermanagh, said that a cross section of society, including prominent figures such Tyrone football manager, Mickey Harte, will attend the rally.
"He'll get lots of local people there from Fermanagh, from Cavan," he said.
"You'll get traders there, you'll get friends … members of the extended family of the Quinns, and there will be a number of speakers there including Mickey Harte, and he will talk about why he supports the Quinns.
"That's just what it's all about, it's about people coming together to show their support for the family at this time."
