Call for Minister to halt work on Moore Street- Cllr Mac Donncha

8 January, 2016 - by Mícheál Mac Donncha


Sinn Féin Dublin City Councillor Mícheál Mac Donncha has called on Minister Heather Humphreys to halt the work on Moore Street involving the potential destruction of the entire historic 1916 terrace 10-25 Moore St, apart from the National Monument 14-17.

Cllr Mac Donncha said:

"Minister Heather Humphreys must intervene immediately to halt this work. She is permitting the destruction of 1916 heritage.

"The National Monument 14-17 Moore Street may now be in State ownership but the Minister is carrying out the plan devised by the totally discredited former owners, the developers Chartered Land. This plan is totally unacceptable.

"There is now huge public concern that the destruction of the terrace has begun. It must be stopped. People will not tolerate the destruction of any part of our 1916 heritage in this Centenary Year."
