Mr Green, a native of Raphoe, became a huge business success since leaving his native Donegal.
He became one of New Zealand’s biggest building contractors and owned huge portions of land.
Despite becoming a huge success, he never forgot his roots and famously returned to Donegal almost every summer.
He also gave kindly to many charitable organisations and recently donated €200,000 to Letterkenny General Hospital for which a fund has been set up in his name.
He was also known for his sense of humour.
The Sunday Independent one time valued his wealth at €80 million and he called them up to complain telling them he was worth much more than that.
