DUBLIN CITY COUNCILLORS have backed a report calling for the preservation of the site at Moore Street where the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising made their final surrender.

Members last night approved a report tabled by a cross-party committee which recommended that four houses at numbers 14 to 17 Moore Street be saved from demolition or redevelopment, as well as preserving nearby lanes used by the rebels as they fled the GPO.

A development proposed for the north end of O’Connell Street would have seen the back-end of many of the Moore Street structures demolished to make way for a “retail-led mixed development”.

We’d like to know how you feel about the proposals: would you like to see the 1916 site at Moore Street preserved or redeveloped?


Poll Results:

Preserved (2999)
