Jerry Kennelly

School dropout-turned-photographer Jerry Kennelly sold his digital image firm Stockbyte to Getty in 2006 for almost €100m.

He gave a big chunk of the windfall to staff and set about disrupting another industry. The Killorglin entrepreneur put more than €20m into Tweak.com, which provides small businesses with an online one-stop-shop for marketing and advertising materials. There have been some tricky property investments plus a stake in Zaragoza restaurant on Dublin’s uber-slick South William Street.
