Making it big in Oz

A 30-YEAR-OLD Wexford man has created a €35m construction company in Australia.

Declan White, originally from Fethard on Sea, has spent his time Down Under building a business into a construction juggernaut within six years.

White arrived in Western Australia in 2008 and launched a company called Monford Group in 2010.

In just four years, it has a turnover of Aus$50m (€34.7m) in the 12 months to June 30 and now employs 180 people in six offices across the country.
