    Default Stabilisation works on no. 16 Moore Street

    Emergency works on Moore Street 1916 site - RTÉ News

    Chartered land has had to carry out stabilisation works on the historic Moore Street Terrace no.14-18. It was believed there was a danger of a collapse.

    The company has planning permission to construct a massive retail development in the block bounded by O'Connell st, Moore st.,Parnell St., and Henry St. As part of their proposals they will be restoring 14 to 18 Moore Street with the new shopping centee being immediately behind the houses. The restored houses will act as a museum to the 1916 rising.

    Whether or not this aspect of chartered land's plans goes ahead or not will be decided on the 24th of April. Public submissions are encouraged. A video with a graphic of the proposals are here:

    What think ye of the plans? Are they acceptable for a national monument?

    Realistically there would probably be no monument without the funds from the developers as I wouldn't imagine there are public funds available at the moment for this sort of thing. Plus both the retail sector and tourism would benefit through job creation. Sounds like a win-win situation.
    It's either very new cheese or very old meat...

    The last time I was in Moore Street it was a National disgrace, as to the state it was in. Of course this comes from the fact that politicians know the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

    Adams calls for minister

    “The terrace in Moore Street is in a state of serious deterioration, having languished in a vacant and neglected state for many years.
    “Latest reports from relatives of the 1916 leaders are that the buildings are now in a perilous state and that urgent intervention is needed to prevent their destruction by decay.
    “This week an emergency visit to the National Monument was requested for the Oireachtas All-Party Working Group on Moore Street including Micheál Martin, Joe Costello, Maureen O’Sullivan and Gerry Adams, but insurmountable obstacles were put in our way by Chartered Land, the owners of the site.
    “Under the National Monuments Act the Oireachtas are the guardians of the site and the minister, Jimmy Deenihan is duty bound to ensure the care and preservation of this unique and now very vulnerable, historical site.
    “He should intervene in order to permit the visit by the Oireachtas group to proceed. He must also act urgently to save the battlefield site and the national monument.”

    Work is to begin on the Commemorative Centre at no 14-17 Moore Street and it is expected that the centre will be completed next year. Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys said that the site will be opened for a special commemorative event next year to mark the centenary of the Easter Rising. The firm behind the restoration of Kilmainham Courthouse will lead the project and the buildings in Dublin city centre will be restored to their original 1916 condition. No 16 on the terrace was the final headquarters of the 1916 Leaders before they surrendered. “Once completed, the new Commemorative Centre will act as a lasting tribute to the 1916 Leaders, allowing people to step back in time to the dramatic final moments of the Rising,” Minister Humphries said.....
