Maeve Mahony (83) and her four daughters own the Killeen Group, which holds the Toyota and Lexus franchises for Ireland. Volkswagen and Hyundai have given Toyota tough competition in recent years, although the company has enjoyed strong car sales.

The family sold their Kilkenny Mount Juliet Resort in a 15m deal with their neighbouring Ballylinch Stud 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 2015.
