SEVENTEEN of the world’s billionaire individuals and families are Irish citizens, according to a new report on the gap between rich and poor.

Oxfam says this equates to 3.5 billionaires per 1 million residents here – the fifth-highest ratio in the world. Only Hong Kong, Cyprus, Switzerland and Singapore have more billionaires per head of population.
