    Seán Quinn's wife ordered to repay €3m

    By Paul Reynolds

    The wife of Seán Quinn must repay the former Anglo Irish Bank more than €3 million arising out of a loan she took out with her husband five years ago. Patricia Quinn claimed she was a homemaker for 36 years and did not even possess a basic knowledge of business matters. She said she did not know what she was signing when she signed the loan agreement and did not get the benefit of the money.

    But the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation described her evidence as incredible. Patricia Quinn was a director of 63 Irish companies, a company secretary of ten and that she held directorships in 28 UK companies.Mr Justice Peter Kelly said a lot of criticism had been made of the credibility of Mrs Quinn's evidence.

    He said for the purpose of this case he was going to set aside all questions of credibility accept everything said in her sworn statements by Mrs Quinn as accurate and truthful. But he said she had failed to make out an arguable defence to the claim by the bank for the repayment of the loan.
