Ulster Unionists condemn latest threats to the family of Glenn Quinn

The Ulster Unionist Party’s East Antrim MLA John Stewart, and the Party Leader Doug Beattie MC MLA, have condemned the latest threat made to the family of Glenn Quinn who was murdered in an attack in his own home in Carrickfergus in January 2020.


East Antrim Ulster Unionist MLA John Stewart said:

“How low can they go?  These lowlives who wrap themselves in flags of convenience and call themselves paramilitaries, not content with murdering  a terminally ill man, are continuing with a campaign of intimidation against Glenn Quinn’s brother and 78-year-old mother.  Martin and Ellen have shown great bravery in continuing to call out these gangsters. I fully support their demand of justice for Glenn.”

Ulster Unionist Party leader Doug Beattie who has met the Quinn family along with John Stewart added:

“This is yet another disgusting twist in this appalling story. Martin and Ellen Quinn deserve the support of the entire community, and the gangsters who are issuing threats against them deserve nothing but contempt.

“The Loyalist Communities Council (LCC) have been quick to make statements in recent days.  Where do they stand on this one?  The law abiding, good people of Carrickfergus need to hear a clear and straight condemnation of the South East Antrim UDA from the LCC.”
