  • Industry Construction

Mayo's Bill Durkan (80) owns more than half of the Durkan construction group, which is a major housebuilder in both Ireland and the UK. Known as the first major developer to pay off €43m in Nama bank loans rather than continue to deal with the State agency, he called Nama unreasonable and said the process of dealing with it was 'cumbersome, costly and time-consuming'. The family's UK arm was named among a list of developers and builders to be included in LDP2, a €20bn initiative to accelerate the construction of housing on public land in London.
