This afternoon.

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Arts and Culture, Aengus O Snodaigh launches a document outlining his proposals for the revitalisation of the Moore Street district.

Via The Irish Sun:

The plan — called A Vision for Moore Street — includes turning Moore Street into a cultural quarter and ‘living museum’ which would involve developing the area to look like it did during the 1916 Easter Rising.

Sinn Fein TD Aengus O’Snodaigh is set to bring forward a bill to the Dail on Wednesday that will put the Moore Street plan on a legislative footing.

The buildings at 14-17 Moore Street were a key base for the 1916 Rising leaders and mark the place where they met for the last time. The streets surrounding the headquarters were also key battlegrounds during the Rising.

UK property group Hammerson, which owns a six-acre site stretching from O’Connell Street to Moore Street and Parnell Street, are set to seek planning permission next month that would involve knocking down buildings and changing the streets.

    Paris Bakery (pre industrial-relations fiasco) was regenerating Moore St in ways the most capable of town-planners could ever have hoped for, before it was terminated.
    Give me buns over your pious republican recruitment centre any day.

      Your right! I’d forgotten about this slice of patisserie fabulousness. What ever happened to the Paris Bakery?

    Only 3 copies of his bill?

    Has he gone through all €50,000 worth of toner cartridges already?

    The idea is very refreshing in comparison to anything else that was proposed for the Moore St area. If carried out appropriately it would revitalise a very historical part of Dublin. Of course it wouldn’t sit well with the developer led brown paper bags style desecration of the city favoured by the Tan loving FG bluebots and the money grubbing FFer’s.
    Many European cities respect their historical sites over here it is all about the hand in the greasy till.

      Tans? Why does everyone who disagree with the shinners a tan. Leopards and spots. You shinners always say we can’t live in the past and any atrocities from the RA was years ago – yet you and your bots mention the tans in every post. Grow up.

      There was a good proposal ca. 10 years to preserve the main historic buildings on Moore St. The families of the 1916 rebels objected and it never went ahead. Not a shinner in sight back then. I was in all 6 buildings that the rebels were in. Pity it never went ahead.

        “You Shinners” oh dear, I apologise if you mistakenly imagine I am Shinner due to my comment.
        I obviously touched a nerve but please keep your childish comments about growing up to your own over active imagination.
        What’s up ? Is it because FG are falling rapidly from grace and appear to be about to tear themselves asunder or is it because I mentioned FF who are heading towards oblivion that has you making frustrated inane comments?
        The proposal that you mentioned was right to be declined by the families. It was highly disrespectful and fatally flawed.

          I got called a shinner earlier for calling out sexism.

          The reality is that I never used the expression ‘tan’ until Charlie Tanagan thought it would be a good idea to commemorate murdering filth.

          Now I do.

            I’ve been using for years, so Charlie T has validated my position.

            Cheers Charlie, you Tory you.
