Y'know how when you're growing up there was always that one kid in your class who seemed minted? They had new runners every term, fancy clowns or magicians at their birthday parties and the idea of them owning a pony wasn't out of the question. 

Basically, they were #primaryschoolgoals. 

So we can only imagine how amazing it must have been to grow up in Ireland's richest family, who have been revealed as the richest fam in Ireland for the past 10 years by the Sunday Times Irish Rich List. 

The Weston family owns Brown Thomas and Primark and is a Canadian empire owned by 45-year-old Galen Weston Jr who was born in Dublin.

Their huge fortune fell by €933 million last year – but is still a mega €11.42 billion

The rich list looked at over 300  of the wealthiest individuals and families in Ireland. Media boss Dennis O'Brien came in second place while the third spot went to Campbell's Soup heir John Dorrance.
