The Chief Executive of the Quinn Industrial Holdings (QIH) has said he and his colleagues in management were satisfied with a meeting they held with Garda Commissioner Drew Harris in Monaghan this afternoon.
Speaking to RTÉ News following the 90-minute meeting, Liam McCaffrey said they were happy to meet the most senior garda in the country and get an update on the situation.
He said they were happy with what they had heard about the garda investigation in so far as they were made aware of it, and pleased that what he described as intimidatory signs had been taken down in the last week.
He said it was probably the first time in five years that company personnel could drive to work without been greeted by these intimidatory signs along the road.

The meeting took place after the directors of the company received another death threat last week, informing that them that it was their "last warning".
In the threat, the anonymous authors told the directors that if they wanted, "we could have killed Kevin very easily", in reference to the attack on Quinn director Kevin Lunney last month.
Mr Lunney was abducted near his home in Co Fermanagh and attacked.
The directors were told they had not learned their lessons after what happened to Mr Lunney.
Today, Mr McCaffrey told Commissioner Harris that failure to bring the orchestrators and pay master behind the abduction and torture of Mr Lunny to justice, would leave the border community in a limbo status of fear and undermine the local economy.
The five directors of QIH are Kevin Lunney, Tony Lunney, Liam McCaffrey, Dara O'Reilly and John McCartin.
