Man accused over Quinn killing hits out

South Armagh man Vincent Treanor has hit out at those attempting to link him to the killing of Paul Quinn in Monaghan last month.
Speaking from his home in Cullyhanna, which has been repeatedly attacked since being publicly linked to the killing, Treanor accused those who are linking him to the Quinn murder of putting his life and the lives of his family in danger.
In the aftermath of Paul Quinn’s killing Ulster Unionist Lord Laird, using parliamentary privilege, pointed the finger of blame at Treanor and his son.
Treanor has repeatedly denied having any involvement in the incident which saw Paul Quinn beaten to death in a barn in Monaghan.
“John Laird and others have chosen to link me and my son to Paul Quinn’s murder. Neither of us had anything to do with it. I have co-operated fully with the Gardaí and the PSNI and have provided evidence to show that I was at a wedding with my wife on the day of Paul Quinn’s murder and my son has witnesses to show that he was working”, said Treanor.
Reacting to the attacks on his home Treanor said that he doesn’t sleep at night as he is worried that his home will be burned down.
“All I want is for my family to be left alone and for these people to call off the attacks on my home”.
