Searches continue in Co. Cavan in the wake of Kevin Lunney’s “devastating” attack

Gardaí have been continuing searches in the Cavan area after a director of Quinn Industrial Holdings was abducted and badly beaten earlier this week.

Kevin Lunney was hospitalised with serious injuries after being found at the side of the road on Tuesday.

Some 800 staff at the business in Derrylin, Co Fermanagh, have signed a petition demanding an end to what they call a “reign of terror” directed at the company.

Father Gerry Cumiskey says the Lunney family have been devastated by the brutal attack.
