11 January, 2016 - by Mícheál Mac Donncha


Dublin City Councillor Mícheál Mac Donncha, on behalf of Sinn Féin, has tabled an Emergency Motion on Moore Street for tonight's City Council meeting.

The motion states:

"This City Council calls on the Heritage Minister Heather Humphreys to intervene immediately to halt the current works on the historic Moore Street 1916 terrace which involve the virtual destruction of Number 18, the inappropriate encroachment on the National Monument 14-17 and the potential demolition of the remaining buildings on the terrace (10-25), based on the plan of the previous owner Chartered Land.

"We call on the Minister to work with the City Council, the 1916 relatives and all relevant stakeholders to implement a new plan which would conserve the terrace 10-25 and create an historic 1916 quarter, and not allow such shameful destruction in the Centenary of the Easter Rising."
