Poll: Should O'Connell St be 'locked down' for Lockout commemorations?

A commemoration is planned for 31 August, but a business group wants it to not include a ‘lock down’ of O’Connell St.

A 1913 LOCKOUT event planned for O’Connell St in Dublin would see the street closed off to traffic for the full day on Saturday 31 August.

Dublin City Business Improvement District (BID) has called for an urgent reversal of the decision. It says it supports the commemoration, but that the closure will prevent cars and buses from accessing the street, and impact retailers on what should be one of the busier days of the year.

Today we ask: Should O’Connell St be ‘locked down’ for the 1913 Lockout commemorations?

Poll Results:

No (2475)
Yes (1629)
I don't know (1251)
