Property magnate Stephen Vernon (65) is probably much richer than previously estimated. Through his listed Green Property he developed the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and other commercial parks before the boom. Then he took Green private in a €1bn deal, selling off a bundle of assets to clear some debts and leaving him with control of the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, which has just been put up for sale with a €1bn-plus price tag. There's about €750m in debt.
