    I came across an interesting article about Ireland's Richest Person and to my amazement it turned out to be Shapoorji Pallonji Mistry... read more about him on this article ..

    To all of you who don't know him..I would like to bring this fact to your notice that he is the largest shareholder in TATA group of companies( the one who have designed NANO car)....

    That's interesting. I have to admit that I never heard of him. I'd be interested to know if he lives in Ireland and if he has any business interests here?

    Did you find my name on the list Scifi?

    He has give up Indian citizenship in 2007 ..and become irish citizen

    He is global citizen .....! He spend lot of time in Ireland

    He is a chairman of Shapoorji Pallonji Group ( Basally in Construction Business )

    I think he has no business in Ireland

    Hmm ..well Fergal..I have not still found the list...But I would love to see the one with your name enlisted..;)

    RealityBites.in ..I think if he has taken citizenship of ireland despite his both sons and business interest based in India....there must be definitely some big reason behind it....

    Anyway the point is that I have found an interesting link between India and Ireland.. :D

    Yeah i know Fergal....BUt I think that
    Taking citizenship of another country just because wife is from that country is something that is not easily digestible from the point of view of such a businessman having incredible business stakes in INDIA...

    3.9£ billion?! That's a lot :)
    I'm sure he's got more money than a lot of small countries...

    Does the Vatican get a lot of donations by the way? Or how does it manage? :)

    The Catholic Church is an extremely wealthy organisation michman, they are one of the largest (if not thee largest) property owners in the world. They receive a huge amount of donations from their followers and this money has been invested in art and property over the years.
