Dubliners are being asked to give their input on the future of historic buildings on Moore Street.

Dublin City Council has recently set up a Moore Street Advisory Committee to look at the development of the Moore Street area.

The Committee will focus on the 1916 GPO Evacuation Route and the Moore Street buildings occupied by the rebels in the final day of the 1916 Easter Rising.

Members of the public are asked to send their submissions to MSAC@dublincity. ie by next Thursday.

Relatives of two of the leaders of the Rising have today called on the Government to back their proposal for the preservation of the buildings and the creation of a 1916 Museum at Moore Street so that it can be delivered on time for the Centenary Celebrations.
