The woman cannot be reasonably expected to remain with her "extremely dynamic" businessman husband, Mr Justice David Keane said.

As part of the judicial separation, she will get the €1.6m family home and a €1.7m holiday home. She is also entitled to €18,000 monthly maintenance - €15,000 for herself and €3,000 for the children - and half of the man's €1.8m pension scheme.

The court heard that the woman is a mother-of-four and a full-time homemaker, while her husband earns an average of €1.4m a year.

They are in their forties and were married for 18 years.
