The Comer brothers come from Glenamaddy, Co Galway, in Ireland.[1][2]

They left school in their teens to work as plasterers.[1] They moved to London in 1984,[3] working first as plasterers and then moving into property development.[1] Since then their focus has shifted to Germany and then to Ireland in 2010, in their quest for value-for-money.[1]

The brothers’ notable projects include the conversion of the listed Friern Hospital (formerly Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum) to residential accommodation in the mid-1990s as Princess Park Manor.[4][5][6]

The Comers invested more than €75 million in property purchases in Ireland, the UK, and Germany within just six months (November 2015-April 2016) and reported plans to invest an additional €200 million in the 18 months to follow.[7] In 2017, two farmers in Ireland filed suit against the brothers over land rights to five acres of grazing territory in north county Dublin.[8]

In 2018, the Comers purchased Kilmartin House, a 111 acres piece of land in Dublin 15. The land will be used for a residential development.[9] In May 2018 it was reported that the Beckett Building, which was purchased by the Comer Brothers in 2013 for roughly €5 million, was sold to Kookman Bank for €101 million.[10]
