Many music lovers in Dublin have spent the last few years lamenting the demise of the POD complex - most notably the two gig venues it housed, Crawdaddy and Tripod.

A few years ago, there were rumours that another Dublin nightclub had bought the complex on Harcourt Street and it was set to re-open, but that plan never came to fruition and the building has been standing empty since it closed in 2012.

Now, it has officially been put up for sale by its owner John Reynolds, with a guide price of €6 million. It's being sold by tender, and interested parties have until June 8th to put in a bid.

Of course, the buyer may not choose to use the building as it was previously used, and the site may well be re-developed, subject to planning permission.

It sure would be great to have another venue of that size back in Dublin, though. Anyone for a whip-round?
