Pat Quinn – Ireland’s retail marketing pioneer

Pat Quinn - Ireland's retail marketing pioneer
The founder of Quinnsworth in 1969. I was only thinking about him the other day, or rather his helicopter. It must have been 1970 or 1971 but I clearly remember his helicopter landing on a rugby pitch in St. Michael’s College on Ailesbury Road to collect his two sons… a photograph of his instantly recognisable face emblazoned on each side of the helicopter.
Ireland’s retail marketing pioneer, a larger than life never say never man who was big into publicity stunts.
When a business venture soured he would always bounce back!
