So a trio of business men with links to Quinn are getting into car insurance and another consortium with links to Quinn - who have taken Quinn on as a consultant - are taking on his old cement business.
McCartin realises that many people may think the €100 million was quietly funded by Quinn. “Yeah, there are people who are saying, ‘Sure you are only an oul’ puppet’.
Yes, people probably are saying that. They are probably adding that if this money were to be from the Quinn family then it must be money that he sheltered from IBRC's attempt to get some money back for the state.
No doubt people were very glad when the Quinn Group brought jobs to former employment black spots but they would forgive him anything. It's like a cult.
Local people acknowledge Quinn made the most disastrous of gambles when he wagered €2.8 billion on Anglo Irish Bank but, as McCartin also says, they feel he was “hoodwinked” by some of the bankers and speculators he fell in with in Dublin.
Sean good, 'Dublin' bad. People in that part of the country reckon everything that went right for Quinn was entirely of his making and everything that went wrong was the fault of someone else.
They are like a sinfully proud mother blinded by the sun shining from the underside of their can-do-no-wrong golden boy. "He just fell in with the wrong crowd." He was the freaking kingpin, Mr Q.
