Construction giant eyes Quinn Group business

UK Construction giant Laing O’Rourke have held talks over buying parts of Quinn Group.

A delegation from the UK-based company left Quinn’s Irish headquarters yesterday after two days of talks, reports claim.

It is unlikely Laing O’Rourke would take on Quinn's insurance assets - currently in administration - instead it is more interested in the construction side of the business.

Quinn is Laing O’Rourke’s primary insurer after it was appointed last year.
