Protected Status Given To Key Moore Street Buildings

Buildings connected with the 1916 Easter Rising on Moore Street in Dublin are to be added to the list of protected structures.

Dublin City Councillors approved the move during a recent meeting.

Sinn Féin Dublin City Councillor Mícheál Mac Donncha said: "This is a further step to protect Moore Street. It shows yet again that there needs to be a new plan. The proposed shopping mall which would see most of Moore Street demolished is totally discredited."
