Sean and next generation of Mulryans take London
Last Tuesday the brave and the bold of the property world gathered at Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London, for the prestigious 2018 Property Awards, the Oscars of the industry, or so they told me.
Ireland's - and mine - favourite property developer, Sean Mulryan and his Ballymore Group, were among the winners on the night, scooping two top awards: Developer of the Year and Placemaking Award for their London City Island development. With the London Film School and English National Ballet joining Trinity Art Gallery in the new development, London City Island is fast becoming the most culturally vibrant new neighbourhood in the capital. You heard it here first!
The property boom is certainly back with a bang, but great to see that Ballymore remains 100pc under the control of the Mulryan family. The next generation of Mulryans were on hand to accept the silverware in London, with Sean's daughter Linda and sons Robert and John all playing key roles in the business.
