It's the biggest manufacturer in Ireland and the UK and has just expanded with a new factory in South Carolina. E&I has exceptionally high margins, making pre-tax profits of €29m in 2014. Derry City FC chairman O'Doherty (55) has bagged the bulk of nearly €63m in dividends paid out over the last four years.
