Denis O’Brien wields great power, influence and authority. According to Independent News & Media, the newspaper group in which he holds a significant stake, he has financial wealth amounting to a staggering €4.7 billion.
The origins of this wealth can be traced back to two key events - his winning of a mobile phone licence in the 1990s from the Irish government, and the subsequent sale of this business (Esat) to British Telecom in 2000.
