Thousands of people from the Cavan and Fermanagh region are expected to gather in Ballyconnell, Co Cavan, this Sunday evening for another support rally for former billionaire Seán Quinn.

The rally is being organised by Concerned Irish Citizens, who were one of several local lobby groups behind the last rally on July 29th.

It is understood there will be a strong representation from the Quinn family at the rally, as well as figures from the business and entertainment world.

The previous rally was attended by well-known figures from the GAA including Mickey Harte, Joe Kiernan and Jarlath Burns.

According to organisers the identity of the speakers is being kept secret to protect them from unwanted attention before the event.

The organisers dismissed rumours that buckets would be passed around for the purpose of collecting money.
