Telecoms - €3.8bn down €900m

Businessman Denis O’Brien (61) first made his fortune in 2000 when he sold his Esat Telecom business to British Telecom Group for €2.4bn.

But his real cash cow has been Digicel, the telecoms business he brought to the Caribbean and South Pacific. Between 2012 and 2014, he received dividends totalling $1.1bn from the company.
