1 Grand Canal Quay

1 Grand Canal Street

This is 1 Grand Canal Quay, where Denis O’Brien’s Communicorp Ltd is headquartered. The building is owned by Mr O’Brien personally, with a registered address at 77 Wellington Road, Dublin 4. I walk by it every morning on the way to work so I was curious about it.

A mortgage charge on the property was registered with Anglo Irish Bank in 2001, 2009 and 2011. Each of these have since been cancelled. The most recent charge from Anglo Irish Bank was cancelled on October 19, 2011.


A new mortgage charge was registered 5 months later with Bank of Ireland on February 29, 2012.
