Irish History Forum Discussion:     1916 Rising Building Future In Doubt

National heritage watchdog An Taisce today set up a working group to save the future of dilapidated Number 16 Moore Street in Dublin where wounded rebel

The last refuge of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising should be converted into an interpretative centre before it becomes a ruin, it was claimed tonight.

National heritage watchdog An Taisce today set up a working group to save the future of dilapidated Number 16 Moore Street in Dublin where wounded rebel leaders wrote the surrender note which ended the rebellion against British rule.

An Taisce’s Antiquities and National Monuments Committee today called for urgent action on the issue at an emergency meeting in central Dublin to discuss the issue.

Committee spokesman Dominic Dunne said: “Half the slates on the building’s roof are missing and the elements are getting in.

“We believe that the site should be converted into an interpretative centre to honour it’s historical and cultural significance.”

The house is owned by the Carlton Development Group, which had planned to develop a large site around Moore Street into a retail centre.

However, the scheme is now the subject of a legal dispute.

Supporting An Taisce’s campaign, the National Graves Association similarly called for the building to be developed into a tourist attraction.

Mr Dunne added: “Next year is the 90th anniversary of the 1916 Rising and it would be a shame if we don’t have this resolved by then."

Many of those who sheltered in the building in the dying hours of the Rising - including James Connolly, Padraig Pearse, Thomas Clarke and Joseph Plunkett - were later executed by the British for their role in the rebellion.

Dublin City Council has said that, although the building is not listed for its architecture, it is listed to be preserved because of its historical significance.

Fianna Fáil MEP Eoin Ryan, whose grandfather gave medical aid to Connolly at the house during the rising, has said he is outraged that the historic building should be allowed to fall into disrepair.
