Motion passed in favour of statue in honour of men and women of 1916- Cllr Janice Boylan
Dublin Sinn Féin city
councillor Janice Boylan has successfully had a motion passed at the central
area committee that calls on Dublin City Council to erect a statue on O’Connell
Street to honour the brave women and men of 1916.
Speaking after the meeting Cllr Boylan said:
“Although the history around the GPO and our capital city is widely known there is no monument or piece of art erected to honour the memory of these men and women.
I am pleased that my
motion received so much support and that it has been referred to the commemorations
committee, where I am hopeful my proposal will be given the support needed.”
