O’Rahilly house completely demolished. Just after DCC voted to preserve it, just after ógra Shinn féin Dublin set up a petition that was to be sent to the housing minister to try give the house national monument status, this is such a sad day in history 😭 #saveourhistory pic.twitter.com/dkDPCdiYaF

Hebert Park, Ballsbrisge, Dublin 4.
The O’Rahilly’s House (top) was the home of 1916 rising leader Michael Joseph O’Rahilly, and is to make room for a proposed aparthotel development with 105 flats fronting on to Herbert Park.
