Further to the decision of Dublin City Council to regain possession of the Iveagh Markets, Francis Street, The Liberties, Dublin 8 which has been derelict for 20 years..
The Earl of Iveagh (Edward Cecil Guinness) funded the construction of the market to ‘provide purpose-built accommodation for the area’s street traders’.
Rory Guinness, Chairman of the Iveagh Trust said:
“Whoever comes to own the Iveagh Market, the Iveagh Trust and the Guinness family will be delighted to see the buildings used again for the benefit of the city.
After years of dereliction, we look forward to the day when this fine building can once again make a positive contribution to the social fabric of Dublin’s Liberties”.
“For the best part of a century, the Markets were a hive of activity. As the condition of the building continues to decline, we hope that pressing remedial works to secure the future of the structure can progress as quickly as possible to ensure that it can benefit Dubliners for generations to come, as Lord Iveagh would have wished”.
