The Sunday Independent reported two days ago on the State’s €129m annual property rent bill. This entry links to the full list (available here, courtesy of the Office of Public Works) and looks at the income of NAMA developers.

(1) Park Rite (Derek Quinlan’s car parking company)

(2) Breydon Developments (Bernard McNamara)

(3) Liam and Rosin Carroll (both as individuals and in the guise of companies, eg Daninger, Alexion)

(4) Niall McCormack

(5) McEnany Construction (John McCann)

(6) Belltrap Property (Joe O’Reilly)
