Along with David Power and Stewart Kenny, John Corcoran (88) was one of the founders

of Paddy Power bookmakers.

He still owns a 2.57pc stake worth more than €156m, although he's trimmed his shareholding slightly for "estate planning" purposes. There have been €7m in dividends recently and €20m in share sales. Dublin-based Corcoran also made good money from his time running Stephen Vernon's Green Property in the 1990s. There are other assets.
