A millionaire by thirty, Quinn took on the Irish cement business in the 1980s and won. He became an almost mythical character, creating thousands of jobs at a time when the dark shadows of mass unemployment and the Troubles loomed over the borderlands. Then he gambled on the stock market, and this time he lost.
Quinn’s senior team was hand-picked, with loyalty prized above all else. But they have now become the sole focus of his obsession, as he holds them responsible for what happened. The atmosphere in ‘Quinn Country’ turned dark and ominous, culminating with the horrific abduction and attack on Kevin Lunney in 2019.
Ten years after losing it all, Quinn is a brooding figure in a monstrous house, refusing to accept any blame for his downfall. This is the truly remarkable story of the man everyone said was too big to fail.
