Campaign for Bewleys takes to the streets

22 November, 2004

Sinn Féin Representative for Dublin South East, Councillor Daithí Doolan today called on the public to lend their support to Wednesdays public launch of "Save Our Bewleys".

Speaking in Dublin this morning Councillor Doolan said:

"Following a successful meeting of the campaign group on Saturday it was agreed to publicly launch the Campaign to Save Our Bewleys. It is imperative that we keep Bewleys open to the public. It has become synonymous with the Dublin we know, it has become a landmark for tourists and locals alike. This launch on Wednesday will be colourful, imaginative and memorable. It will include street theatre, music and poetry.

I will also be raising the issue of Bewleys with the Minister for Environment, Heritage & Local Government Dick Roche in an attempt to to keep the cafes open. It is clear that the minister has a responsibility to protecting this important aspect of our heritage and the jobs that are currently at stake."

In conclusion Cllr. Doolan called on, "people to rally to the call and support this event on Wednesday. It is guaranteed to entertain and highlight this issue."

The public launch of the Campaign to Save Our Bewleys Wednesday 11am-1pm Bewleys Grafton Street. ENDS
