He is from an entrepreneurial family – his mother Veronica produces the award-winning Crossogue Preserves, while his brother runs an equestrian centre on the family farm. John Molloy, co-owner of luxury perfume company Memo

Molloy, who grew up on a farm near Thurles, set up Memo with his wife Clara in 2007.

By 2012, the business had grown to the point that he left his job as international marketing director for the cosmetics firm Lancôme to join his wife in the business full time.

Having launched with a range of four perfumes, the Molloys now produce 17 different scents which sell for between €155 and €185 a bottle.
