Kevin Lunney abduction: Sean Quinn tells local radio station his family is afraid they'll be blamedSean Quinn tells local radio station his family is afraid they'll be blamed for 'barbaric' attack on Kevin Lunney The fact that the ‘Sean Quinn Community’ Facebook page ceased its rants and ravings on the day of the Quinn kids settlement suggests some link between the family and the cheerleaders for the attackers. They were useful idiots for the Quinns until they got favourable terms. Some group did this for a reason. This wasn’t done because locals are still mad at the fact the Quinns no longer run the business. It’s 10+ years on. Someone is gaining monetarily from this. Need to ask who has something to gain from it and you will find the people behind this.
