Revenue investigations into tax dodging netted €147m for the Exchequer in the first three months of the year with the name-and-shame list topped by a publican.
Seamus Delaney, the Kilkenny businessman and owner of Jas Delaney’s in the city paid out €1.36m, the highest bill and the only million euro settlement.
Joseph O’Connor, a former independent councillor from Nenagh, Co Tipperary, who made a €2.3m settlement with the Revenue in 2003, was ordered to pay up a second time.
The supermarket owner managed to avoid a repeat of his first costly Revenue audit with fines, penalties and back taxes just topping €200,000 this time.
Retried publican Bartholomew Dunne, from Kill Lane, Blackrock, Co Dublin, who ran Bartley Dunne’s pub on Lower Stephen’s Street, settled for €36,000.
