Famous Dublin nightclub no longer for sale as it is taken off the market by Laois owner

Earlier in the year, it was announced that Copper Face Jacks had been put on the market by Laois owner, Cathal Jackson. 

But now, the legendary club is no longer up for sale following Jackson’s recovery from ill health.

Ex-Garda Jackson and wife Paula have owned the iconic premises for 23 years.

The enormous Dublin city centre night-club and the adjoining Jackson Court Hotel spans five buildings over three floors on Harcourt Street.

Coppers went on the market in March and was expected to sell for up to €40 million.

According to the Irish Times, the staff received a memo from Cathal and Paula Jackson.

They said: “As you know, Cathal had some health issues late last year and reluctantly made the decision to put Coppers on the market

“The proposed sale was launched in March of this year and attracted strong interest. Several approaches were made.

“However, we are pleased to confirm that as Cathal has now recovered his health completely, he has decided to stay actively involved in the business. As a result, he has now formally withdrawn the property from sale.

“Cathal and Paula would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all their staff for their support during this time.”
