Local chairperson Caolán McGinley said “We felt it was important to travel down to Dublin on Sunday and support the Save Moore Street campaign  .It’s an absolute scandal that this is being allowed to happen at what should be a national monument.As Gerry Adams said this is  one of the most historically important sites in the history of the nation and Moore Street has a special place in the hearts of citizens. It is vital to ensure that it is redeveloped in the respectful and dignified manner befitting of its status.

There needs to be a halt to the works being undertaken now in order for consultation to take place amongst the various stakeholders involved, including the Save Moore Street campaign, the 1916 relatives, the Moore Street traders and the local community, who all simply want what’s best for Moore Street.”

It was great to see people from across Ireland being there to support the campaign and the likes of Damien Dempsey lending his support and playing a rendition of the Foggy Dew  to the crowd.
