Corraleehan native, Ray O’Rourke has come in at number 294 on this year’s UK Rich List and number 28 on Ireland’s Rich List.

A report in the Sunday Times put Mr O’Rourke’s personal wealth in the region of £280m.

However this is a significant drop from 2007 when, at the height of the Celtic boom, Mr O’Rourke reached 25th place on the UK Rich List with an estimated wealth of £560m.

Mr O’Rourke is Chairperson and CEO of Laing O’Rourke, a multinational construction company headquartered in Dartford, United Kingdom.

The company has operations in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, and the Middle East.
