Description

In the early years of the twenty-first century, Sean Quinn was considered to be Ireland’s richest man, with a Midas touch: everything he touched seemed to turn to gold. His company owned Ireland’s only glass producers, and one of its biggest insurance companies. The Quinn Group owned pubs, hotels, office complexes and shopping centres across Ireland, Europe and Asia. But between 2007 and 2013, the Quinn Group became one of Ireland’s biggest ever business failures. Senn Quinn became Ireland’s biggest ever bankrupt, and in the winter of 2012-2013 he ended up in jail for nine weeks, having been found in contempt of court. Why did his empire collapse so suddenly, and disastrously? ‘In My Own Words’ seeks not to complain about Quinn’s fate, but to tell the truth – about what really happened.
