Rathgar-based David Power (71) owns 3.86 million shares in Paddy Power Betfair, which he co-founded, worth about £330m. The share price has fallen slightly in the past year, but due to the exchange rate they're still worth about €380m. Last July, he invested €700,000 into the home of flat racing here, the Curragh Racecourse, which is being redeveloped and is set to reopen next year. Share sales and dividends - most recently a €2.5m one - as well as property in the UK accounts for the rest of his wealth.
