From the 2011 General Election a leaflet from Independent Candidate Caroline Forde who was running in Cavan Monaghan. Forde , an employee of the Quinn group was seen as the Sean Quinn candidate and was tipped by many as an outside chance of a seat.
She endorsed “the proposals put forward by the Quinn family for Quinn insurance as by far the only viable solution which will maximise for the people of Cavan / Monaghan the full value and potential for growth, not just in jobs retention but jobs growth in the area.”
She polled 1912 votes and failed to win a seat.
No mention of her support for Cllr Seamus Treanor, whose approach to the jobs crisis is basically: send all the furriners home.
