A High Court judge has agreed to visit Moore Street in Dublin as part of a legal challenge aimed at protecting a number of buildings.
The Government is facing opposition to its plans to build a commemorative centre there to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
Number 16 Moore Street is part of a group of buildings within the central terraced block of Moore St and is considered to be the last headquarters of the leaders of the 1916 Rising before their surrender.
In 2006, it was designated a national monument along with numbers 14, 15 and 17.
Work began on a commemorative centre last year, but that has been put on hold because of a legal action aimed at protecting other buildings on the site.
Colm Moore from the 1916 Relatives Association believes numbers 13, 18 and 19 should be designated national monuments too, but the Government claims they hold no historical significance and should make way.
Today, Mr Justice Max Barrett was asked to visit the site and the buildings at the centre of this legal action.
The High Court judge accepted the invitation and the State agreed to continue its undertaking not to carry out any works pending the outcome of the case.
