A businessman, a pop star, an actress and a Lottery winner make up the local entries in this year’s Sunday Times Rich List which was published at the weekend.

The grand total of the reported fortune between the four lucky entrants on the list amounts to around £350 million.

New to the list is businessman Philip O’Doherty, Chairman of Derry City FC, who owns 80% of E&I Engineering which is based in Burnfoot, Inishowen, Co Donegal.

The firm makes large industrial electronic switchgear systems and O’Doherty is estimated to have a current worth of £38m.

The biggest local earner on the list is Derry actress Roma Downey who, when combined with the wealth of her American television producer husband Mark Burnett, is estimated to be worth £295million.

According to The Sunday Times, Roma’s personal fortune is estimated to be in the region of £10million.

The couple have recently hit the headlines around the world with their co-produced mini-series ‘The Bible’ which broke the ratings records in the USA over the Easter period.

Derry songstress Nadine Coyle also makes it into the UK Young Rich List with a net worth estimated at £6m. The singer has just completed a successful tour with Girls Aloud, however the band have since announced their split.

Nadine lives in California where she owns a bar in Orange County called Nadine’s Irish Mist.

The bar is run by her father Niall and the singer’s home is estimated to be worth £1m.

The last lucky local to make in on the list is computer consultant Ryan Magee from Altnagelvin who has appeared on the rich list since he won a £6.5m Euromillions windfall in 2008, after buying 11 tickets in Omagh, Strabane, Coleraine and Derry.

The 30-year-old was one of six people in the UK to share the £95 million jackpot, with ten others across Europe also winning life-changing sums of cash.
