16 Moore Street, Dublin 1 Leon Farrell/Photocall Ireland
Moore Street

Members of public invited to have their say on future of 1916 buildings

The final decision will be “hugely influenced by what the people want to see on Moore Street”.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL (DCC) is looking for suggestions from the public as to the preservation, use and development of 14-17 Moore Street in Dublin 1.

It is from within these buildings that the headquarters of the Provisional Government was set up during the 1916 Easter Rising. It is at this same site that many of the figureheads are believed to have surrendered.

A preservation order was placed on the site in 2007 – 91 years later – so that no changes to the buildings could be made without ministerial consent.

A Moore Street Advisory Committee is now in place for the purpose of making recommendations to DCC on the future development of the area.

It is to this committee that members of the public, either as individuals or as a group, are invited to make suggestions.

The chairperson of the committee, councillor Nial Ring, said that the review process would be “hugely influenced by what the people want to see on Moore Street”.

Submissions can be sent to by Thursday 31 January or posted to: The Chairman, Moore Street Advisory Committee, City Manager’s Department, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8.
