Michael Quinn, a respected business man of 25 years who in 2001 single handed fought off a band of ram raiders, has been fighting off raiders of a different sort, the economic terrorist from the twice PUBLIC bailed out Allied Irish Bank (AIB).
Here is the quality of the man in question:
SHOOTOUT HERO; Store boss Michael opens fire as ram raiders run him down.
Byline: PATSY McARDLE
A FILLING station owner was run over by a getaway car yesterday in a shootout with a gang of ram raiders who smashed their way into his shop
Michael Quinn, a 38-year-old father of four, went down fighting after he tackled the gang single-handed.
The four robbers tried to kill him as he blocked their way, mangling his legs under the wheels as he was dragged along the road. The raiders struck at Cloughvalley Stores on the main Dublin-to-Derry road outside Carrickmacross in Co Monaghan at 4.10am.
The gang lifted a manhole cover on the man highway near the store to cut a telephone cable to the complex which operated the alarm system.
They smashed open the door but triggered an inside buzzer which awakened Mr Quinn who was sleeping in his house next door.
When the alarm went off, he grabbed a legally held gun and ran to the store where he was confronted by the armed raiders.
After an exchange of shots, the gang ran outside to a waiting silver Mitsubishi car which had the number plates removed.
Mr Quinn ran after them and aimed at the driver, forcing him to stop.
But as he was waiting for Gardai to arrive, the car was suddenly started and driven at him.
He was knocked to the ground and suffered a broken leg.
Gardai failed to stop as it sped towards Carrickmacross.
Mr Quinn was treated at the scene for severe leg injuries and later taken to Navan Hospital where he had surgery yesterday afternoon for a compound leg fracture.
He was described last night as “fairly comfortable”.
Locals praised him for his bravery in tackling the gang.
His shocked wife Bridie said: “It was a terrifying experience for us – thank God it didn’t end worse.”
Another resident said: “Michael is the hero of the town. He was very brave to take on these criminals – he could have been killed.
“We hope the Gardai will be successful in apprehending them.”
A Garda spokesman said: “The way in which the gang cut the alarm system indicates they were professionals, possibly operating out of Dublin or some other large centre.
“The hunt for the raiders is continuing.”
Carrickmacross council chairwoman Rosaleen O’Hanlon said: “We all deplore this type of crime. Mr Quinn must be commended for his vigilance and the great courage he displayed.
“These people are ruthless and will stop at nothing to snatch other people’s hard earned cash or property.”
Lets be clear, Michael has not refused to pay anything as you can hear for yourself in his own words as a group of selfless men and woman dig deep to lend whatever aid they may to fend off trespassers and their hired “security” from an American company K Tech Security. The bank maneuvered them with words of encouragement in regards to a potential (positive) solution to a ongoing matter the bank has been remiss in dealing with, into leaving their private property while they attempted to muscle the couple out of their property.
A description of events by: Darrell: of the Ancient Clan O’Deaghadh
Military Lockdown by AIB!
Yesterday, AIB were involved in a Military Style lockdown at a family owned and run shop in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan.
The shop; Clough Vally Stores is owned and run by Michael & Bridget Quinn. It is one of the biggest people employers in the town of Carrickmacross and the greater Monaghan region.
AIB on the previous Monday blatantly lied to Michael & Bridget. Bank officials told them that they wished to meet them in Dublin on the basis of working out a plan or deal on which their business would continue to trade and operate. Michael and Bridget were elated. They drove to Dublin …
Surplus to Requirement!
When they got to the meeting, they were told to pack their bags, that they were no longer required, & that the bank were currently meeting with their employees, behind their backs, to tell them that the Bank, AIB and their receivers, Kavanagh Fennell had taken over.
Dirt … Kavanagh Fennel.
We also discovered that the employees were and have been treated like dirt by Kavanagh Fennell receivers. Staff were told that if they didn’t like what was happening, they could pack their bags and go.
Kavanagh Fennell on instruction by the AIB, proceeded to lockdown the building using a military style security firm called K-Security. They took out the safe, changed all the locks and proceeded to patrol the supermarket grounds and shopping area, as some shoppers have described them, like “Nazi storm troopers”.
AIB Stole the Money!
Yesterday afternoon Michael, Bridget and three generations of their family decided enough was enough. In began to dawn on them what AIB were doing to them. AIB had stolen their business, without Lawful authority whatsoever and were now in occupation of their property.
Michael, Bridget and their family had worked their knuckles bare for the past 5 years, and had given everything to the AIB. The business and the way they ran things was and still is profitable, viable and effectively run.
AIB Corrupt Bankrupts.
Here are a known bankrupt and corrupt bank, that have gone begging to the Government to receive hand-outs, off the backs of the People of Ireland, because they could run a proverbial “piss up in a brewery” … ironic really.
AIB Lied, Conned and Robbed … FACT
They; the AIB have lied and conned, and ROBBED this family, out the doors of their own business, that they have been successfully running for generations. To copper fasten this CON, the AIB instructed, without any Lawful authority or agreement form the Quinns, a receiver and military style security firm, to make sure that the Quinns are physically kept out of their own property, while the AIB can go in and literally, harass the staff, rob the cash & strip and ruin business.
The AIB’s big plan was in full swing, and was working up until yesterday afternoon. Michael and Bridget decided to go back into their business yesterday, and let the AIB that they were not welcome and to cease and desist their unlawful operation.
Militia of Kavanagh Fennell.
They peacefully walked in, and instructed a locksmith to change the locks on their Property, & were immediately met with some very fierce & belligerent resistance from K-tech, the military style militia of the receivers of Kavanagh Fennell. Despite the fact that Michael repeatedly instructed that the security firm to back down and leave their property immediately, because they were now trespassing, they simple ignored him, and obstructed the locksmith from carrying out his duties.
Gardaí Ignore Criminals in Action.
In order to keep the peace, Michael himself called Carrickmacross Gardai. The Gardai did turn up, instead of proceeding to lawfully keep the peace by arresting & removing the men that were now trespassing, they told the Lawfully appointed locksmith to leave. At which point another man, that was called by the trespassers arrived and proceeded to undo the work of the locksmith. The Gardai ignored this criminal behaviour.
Wash Their Hands.
Michael proceeded, and lawfully arrested the trespassers, and instructed the Gardai to take them into custody. They ignored him and walked away. The Gardai could have ended the matter there and then and everyone could have gone home peacefully.
K-Tech American Style Military Security in Ireland!
Michael was left with few options. The Gardai were NOT acting as Gardai and keeping to, and operating under their sworn oath of office, to keep the peace of Michael & his family, his business and the people and staff members present. They had now stepped into the realm of colluding with and facilitating criminals and their criminal behaviour.
i.e. The AIB Bank, the receivers Kavanagh Fennell & the military security K-tech Security.
500 Townspeople, RTE etc.
More people started to get involved. More locksmiths were called. Another security consultant arrived. A female receiver barricaded herself into an office and refused to leave the property. More Garda arrived. RTE turned up. There were journalists there, amongst a crowd of over 500 local townspeople, that turned up to support Michael & Bridgets lawful actions. Three generations of the family were now trapped in their own property by the unlawful receivers and security firm. The Gardai now took up the role of trying to convince and cajole Michael and Bridget to leave their own property.
Inspector McGadget Arrives.
A friend of Michaels arrived and spoke directly to Inspector Fintan Mc. Tiernan … Fintan had earlier been instructed to take the security men, and receiver woman into custody, that they were under arrest. Fintan ignored these clear instructions.
AIB Allegations Explained.
Michaels friend explained to Inspector Fintan McTiernan the situation about AIB.
He proceeded as follows … AIB were and had made serious allegations about the Quinn family and their business owing the AIB money (a Civil matter).
Verify and Document the Obligation.
Michael had Legally & Lawfully requested that the AIB substantiate any claim, they feel they had, via written documentation and verifiable accounting. That he was “more than happy to pay any financial obligation that was lawfully owed as soon as he received or could properly inspect original of the three documents listed below”.
1. Validation of the debt — The Actual Accounting (the Banks accounts).
2. Verification of the AIB’s claim via a Signed Invoice or Sworn Affidavit.
3. A Copy of the Lawful Contract binding both parties.
STILL Paying AIB?
Michael did not and has not refused to pay the bank. He did not stop paying the Bank! As far as we know he is STILL paying the Bank. Instead of positively responding to this Family and working things out with them amicably, they, the AIB have just ignored their Legal & Lawful questions and sent in the Storm Troopers, supported by “our” Gardaí.
“Is this what happens when We ask Questions?”
People of Ireland … are WAKING UP.
Last night we got a sign of the pain that the real people of this country are suffering, the internal, external, psychological and emotional turmoil and abuse that we are all being out through. Not just by the AIB, but ALL the Banks, the Corporate Government and the Draconian Judicial system and so called Legal professions. Has it gone so bad, that a bank think that they can waltz in and completely devastate and destroy a man, a woman, our families, a community, a town and now a country, and just get away unscathed?
Bank FRAUD EXPOSED!
Carrickmacross is the final straw. The people in this not so sleepy little town are waking up this morning, to a new awareness. Carickmacross is the turning point for ALL OF US. All the Banks have been operating in one massive FRAUD. People of Ireland, Stop giving them any More of your energy. STOP PAYING DEBT … IT IS AN ILLUSION!
