The K Club: back in Smurfit family hands

GameAccountNetwork’s rather suave chief executive Dermot Smurfit Jr slummed it at the five-star Merrion hotel when he was in town on Wednesday to meet investors and discuss the tech firm’s results.

He spent the weekend, however, at the K Club, owned by his uncle Sir Michael Smurfit. “It’s nice to see it back in family hands,” said the younger Smurfit, who was chuffed he had caught 10 pike on the grounds. Has he read his uncle’s new autobigraphy? “I read a draft last year, which was much more interesting than the final version.”
