Stop Moore Street monument works, committee recommends

A committee has recommended that any works on the National Monument site at Moore Street in Dublin be stopped until a more appropriate setting for the buildings is proposed.

The Moore Street Advisory Committee also recommends an independent site assessment be commissioned to include the evacuation route for the 1916 rising and the area around Moore Street, the GPO, and Parnell Street.

The group was set up to review and make recommendations to Dublin City Council on the overall development of the Moore Street area.

The report will be considered by the council at their meeting next Monday.
