Noel Smyth - Solicitor-turned-developer Noel Smyth is famous for representing Ben Dunne at the Moriarty tribunal. He founded legal firm Noel Smyth & Partners but is no longer involved, being a full-time developer. He first came to prominence as chairman of Dunloe Ewart, but was later bought out of the company following a bitter takeover battle with Liam Carroll whom Dunloe had marginally outbid for a site on Sir John Rogerson's Quay on Dublin's south docks. He has extensive property interests in Britain and also owns sites in south Dublin. He bought Quinlan Private's shops in The Square for €340m in 2007.
Tom McFeely - The IRA hunger striker turned developer lives on Dublin's Ailesbury Road in the former German embassy. In his only ever interview, he told this newspaper last week that "despite my success under capitalism, I'd have no problem trying socialism in Ireland. But, in the meantime, I have to live. And I might as well live as good as the next!" He drives a Bentley that cost almost €280,000 and has a sports car. McFeely was born in Dungiven in Co Derry and is 60. He was sentenced to 26 years in prison after being charged in 1976 with attempted murder of police, possession of weapons and a post-office robbery.
