Moore Street on the agenda as Lynn Boylan MEP meets with Council of Europe

27 November, 2014 - by Senator Lynn Boylan

Dublin Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has met with Ms Claudia Luciani, Director of Democratic Governance from the Council of Europe to discuss the Save Moore Street campaign.

Speaking after the meeting Lynn Boylan said:

"I sought this meeting to discuss any obligations Ireland may have, as asignatory to the Council of Europe Convention for Protection of the Architectural Heritage of Europe, to protect Moore Street from commercial development.

I had a very constructive and informative meeting on the Moore Street issue. I have requested that the Council of Europe write to the Irish Ambassador to highlight our concerns on the proposed development of Moore Street, primarily surrounding the planning process issues and the historical and cultural importance of this site to both the city of Dublin and the country as a whole.

I felt the meeting with the Council of Europe was a promising first step and I will now await the response from the Irish Ambassador on the issue."
