Pow­er­scourt heir has left €1.4m to his wife

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE HEIR to the Pow­er­scourt Es­tate has left al­most €1.4 mil­lion to his wife in his will.

Re­tired anes­thetist Michael Slazenger (69), The Wa­ter­fall, En­niskerry, was killed in a plane crash on the grounds of the es­tate last April. His fa­ther Ralf made his for­tune from the Slazenger ten­nis and sports brand.

Michael, pic­tured right, was pilot in a light air­craft when it hit a tree and both Mr Slazenger and his pas­sen­ger Noel Whit­ney were killed.

Michael's fam­ily friend de­scribed him as ‘a su­per­hero who liked to be in­vis­i­ble,' at the fu­neral in En­niskerry last year. ‘Michael needed to fly; it was hard­wired into his per­son­al­ity,' he said. ' He led a ful­fill­ing, joy­ous and won­der­ful life.' He left his es­tate, which amounted to €1,398,996, to his widow Noreen with any residue to the var­i­ous fam­ily trusts that own the Pow­er­scourt Es­tate.
