Quinn €3m loan to be ruled on today

A court will tell Sean Quinn's wife today whether she has to repay €3m borrowed in her name from the former Anglo Irish Bank.

Patricia Quinn has said she was under the "undue influence" of her husband when she signed up for the 2006 loan.

IBRC, formerly Anglo, is trying to secure summary judgement for a loan it says was issued to the Quinns to decorate their home.

Patricia Quinn claims she did not understand what she was signing for and never got the benefit of the money.

IBRC is questioning Patricia Quinn's defence that she had no business savvy, saying she was a director of 63 companies and company secretary of 10.
