Apollo House on Tara Street, Dublin 2

Conor Pope, in The Irish Times, reports:

“The site of the former Apollo House building in Dublin’s city centre has been sold to Pat Crean & Partners for more than €50 million.

“The Tara Street site comes with planning permission for a 10-storey over-basement office building, which will include ground floor retail, cafe, bar and restaurant units. It will also include 40 car parking spaces and 166 bicycle stands.”

Meanwhile, how did Apollo House get its name, anyone?

Preposterous: “Bodger, there have been a number of queries about Broadsheet from representatives of the traditional media in the last fortnight.”

Bodger: “Hurrah!”

Preposterous: “After eight years of indifference we have been approached by journalists wishing to write about the site”

Bodger: “Brilliant. Our recent series of excellent Golden Discs competitions I expect?”

Preposterous “They have been fascinating.”

Bodger: “They really have.”

Preposterous: “But no. It may have something to do with Gemma O’Doherty’s recent campaign.”

Bodger :”Ah.”

Preposterous “And I must warn you, much of the interest doesn’t seem particularly positive.”

Bodger: *dry swallow*

Preposterous: “Some of it centres around our finances.”

Bodger: “We have finances?”

Preposterous: “The accounts.”

Bodger: “We have accounts?”

Preposterous: “We have a complete set of books and are fully tax compliant.”

Bodger: “Nice.”

Preposterous: “Largely owing to the fact that they don’t tax ongoing, horrendous losses.”

Bodger: “Take that, Revenue.”

Preposterous: “I’m not sure that satisfied them.”

Bodger: “Sounds pretty humiliating.”

Preposterous: “It felt something close to shame.”

Bodger: “To be broke and then having to prove you’re broke.”

Preposterous: “The concept that we do this for nothing was not credible.”

Bodger “And the sense of not being believed when you say you’re broke.”


Bodger: “A broke, broken dude. A hollow, disbelieved shell.”

Preposterous: “Well…”

Bodger: “I mean you’re not a young man.”

Preposterous:  (adjusts top knot) “No.”

Bodger: “You’re an old guy. With a commercially unviable website.”

Preposterous: “With enormous potential and a loyal…”

Bodger:”A sad old dreamer trolled and laughed at by right thinking people.”

Preposterous: “Onwards.” (smiles weakly)

Bodger: “You’ve nothing to show for eight years except the contempt of your fellow journalists, an ability to swallow your pride on a minute to minute basis and Leather Jacket Guy’s private number.”

Preposterous: “That’s just a regular number he gives out.”

Bodger: “Well, exactly. The whole thing is ridiculous.”

Preposterous: “It does sound pretty bleak when put like that.”

Bodger: “Preposterous, even.”

Preposterous: “That too.”

Bodger: “Yes.”

Preposterous: “Yes.”

Bodger: “Think on that.”

Preposterous: “Yes. I will.”

Bodger: “I would.”
