Save 16 Moore Street

We demand that you save number 16 Moore Street from destruction. The building is of extreme importance not just to the people of Dublin or the people of Ireland but to the citizens of the World. Number 16 Moore Street was the final HQ of the Army of the Irish Republic during the final hours of the Easter Rising of 1916. It was in this building that the wounded James Connolly lay in a stretcher. Also present were his fellow members of the Provisional Government; Padraic Pearse, Joseph Plunkett, Thomas Clarke and Sean MacDiarmada. These five men were amongst the executed leaders of the 1916 Rising. We owe it to the men and women of that period not to sully their reputation and memory by destroying a building so closely associated with their struggle.
There are currently no roofing slates on number 16 Moore Street. The building is exposed to the elements and needs immediate work performed to protect the internal structure.
We understand that Dublin needs further development but we demand that is not at the expense of our heritage.
