Irish Independent - June 11, 2010
Several prominent businessmen are set to get a cash injection following news that the consortium that bought the Goldman Sachs headquarters in London for €370m 10 years ago have put the building up for sale again.
The consortium is believed to be looking to recoup the amount they paid for the Fleet Street building when they bought it in 2000 in a landmark deal which heralded the arrival of the Irish as a force in the London property market.
The former 'Daily Express' building was bought by Green Property and a group of Irish investors put together by Kevin Warren.
Those who backed the original investment through the Isle of Man-based River Court include beef baron Larry Goodman, former DCC boss Jim Flavin, Kingspan founder Eugene Murtagh, Fexco's Brian McCarthy, former 'Kilkenny People' owner John Kerry Keane, Galway businessman Donogh O'Donoghue and builder Sean McKeon.
