The landmark property had been put on sale, with a guide price in the region of 30 to 35 million, despite the fact when it was last sold it was for an astonishing €212million.

The price paid for the famous property was not made public.

“Beef Baron” Larry Goodman and his family own the Parma Group, who this week said: “ “The property division of Parma Group through its wholly-owned subsidiary Ramly Ltd has purchased the former Bank of Ireland headquarters building in Baggot Street.”

The Goodman family has an extensive portfolio of property interests.

AIBP is the Irish Meat Division of Irish Food Processors (IFP) with a beef turnover in excess of 1 billion Euro and, in addition to being Europe’s largest beef producer, it is also the longest established beef processing group in Ireland. 
AIBP commenced business in the mid 1960’s when Larry Goodman started his first processing facility in Ravensdale, Dundalk. The Goodman family had a long tradition second to none in the agri export business exporting livestock mainly to the British market. 
The Head Office, now based in Ardee, Co. Louth, has operations strategically situated throughout Ireland from which it takes pride in supplying the best beef to its customers throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
