Maeve Mahony (82) and her daughters own the Toyota and Lexus franchise for Ireland, which was established by her late husband Tim and his Killeen Group. Volkswagen has toppled Toyota as the biggest seller in Ireland, although more than 13,000 Toyotas were sold here last year.

The family sold their Kilkenny Mount Juliet Resort in a €15m deal with their neighbouring Ballylinch Stud sold to US billionaire John Malone for €40m. Daughters Joan Ward, Sarah Twomey, Jenny Howes and Mary Mahony spent €15.1m to buy an office block at Customs House Plaza in the IFSC last February.
