Croissant maker Owen Killian is embarking on one of the largest private rebuilding projects in Dublin, completely overhauling the house he bought on Shrewsbury Road for €6.5m two years ago. There'll even be a lift for his car to bring it up from the underground garage. But Killian's wealth has been hammered by a collapse in the share price of listed baked goods group Aryzta, which he has run for over a decade.

Shares have plummeted 40pc as demand weakens and investors scratch their heads over Killian's decision to buy a chunk of a posh frozen food retail group. The Roscommon man owns €26.3m worth of shares. Between share sales and other earnings, there's another €30m.
