Thomas McDonogh

Thomas McDonogh & Sons, chaired by Tom McDonogh (82), has been the pre-eminent company in Galway for 150 years, with wide interests ranging from agri supply to property. It has redeveloped the city's quays but its property interests extend much further afield than that, even to a building that houses the European Commission in Brussels. Little wonder that it has been said of the McDonoghs that 'half of Galway was employed by them and the other half looked on in envy'.
