Boyle (62), from Co Down, founded the biggest privately-owned betting firm in Ireland, Boylesports, with 250 outlets. As a young man, he gave up drinking and set up a bookies, which is Ireland's largest independent chain. His son-in-law now runs the business. John has claimed that an increase in betting tax introduced this year will result in shop closures.
