Citizen Quinn

by Gavin Daly | 29 May 2014
Paperback
Category: Everything Irish
Synopsis
Citizen Quinn tells the staggering story of the rise and fall of Ireland's richest man: Sean Quinn. A few years ago, Sean Quinn was ranked among the two hundred richest people in the world, with a personal fortune of some $6 billion. Today he is bust, and his businesses have been taken from him. How did it all happen? In Citizen Quinn , Ian Kehoe and Gavin Daly trace the remarkable life of the 'simple farmer's son' who made most of his money through guts and graft long before the excesses of the Celtic Tiger, who brought economic vibrancy to a depressed border region, and who then lost it all through a disastrous move into the insurance business and a multi-billion-euro gamble on the shares of the world's most toxic bank. 'Gripping and well-researched ... paints a picture of a man who is delusional about what has happened and the extent to which he is to blame' Irish Times 'For all those intrigued by by a small Cavan farmer's son came to be one of the richest men in the world, and then lost it all, Citizen Quinn is a must-read' Sunday Business Post 'The book chronicles this truly compelling story, and the story of a compelling man' Irish Mail on Sunday 'A gripping story told in language that people without an MBA can follow' Irish Independent 'A great read' Sean O'Rourke, RTE Radio One
