Lynn Boylan welcomes High Court Ruling on Moore Street

18 March, 2016 - by Lynn Boylan MEP


Dublin MEP Lynn Boylan has welcomed the result of today's court ruling concerning the Moore Street 1916 battlefield site.

Speaking this afternoon the Sinn Féin MEP said:

"I am delighted with today's High Court decision. The 1916 relatives have fought to save Moore Street for fifteen years now.

“Today's decision is the result of much hard work and resolve in the midst of opposition from government after government who ignored their pleas.

"On two occasions I have raised the Save Moore Street campaign with Ms Claudia Luciani, Director of Democratic Governance from the Council of Europe.

"I have also spoken in the European Parliament on the matter.

"I will inform my colleagues in Europe of today's decision and I will be asking that they now maintain a watching brief on the matter.

"Mr Justice Barrett's decision today is vindication for the 1916 relatives. I look forward to a new approach from the government."
