The McHugh Family

Killybegs’ McHugh family are one of the biggest frozen fish producers in Europe.

Their Atlantic Dawn fishing empire was set up by the late Kevin McHugh, who left an estate worth €72m when he died. The family sold the €50m Atlantic Dawn super trawler in 2006 — but kept the fishery quotas, which are thought to be worth close to €50m. Karl McHugh (41) owns a 25pc stake in the business.
