McDonald welcomes High Court ruling on Moore Street

18 March, 2016 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Sinn Féin Deputy Leader and Dublin Central TD Mary Lou McDonald has welcomed today’s High Court ruling which prevents the destruction of the Moore Street battlefield site.

Deputy McDonald said;

“The ruling in the High Court today is a brilliant result and I want to congratulate the 1916 Relatives and their legal team.

“It is a great shame that the relatives of our 1916 heroes had to take the state to the High Court to protect our heritage.

“As a local TD in the area I know that this ruling will be welcomed by the vast majority of people in Dublin Central.

“Any new incoming government must now go back to the drawing board and preserve the GPO/Moore Street area as a revolutionary quarter.  This would be of benefit both economically and culturally to the people of Dublin and the rest of Ireland and would also be a fitting tribute to the men and women of 1916.”
