  • 16 Moore St

    This historically significant building is scheduled for destruction and to be replaced by a badly needed shopping centre. For those who don't know the leaders of the 1916 Rising took the decision to surrender in this building which is marked by a minute plaque about twenty feet up on the wall. One commentator noted recently that the GPO itself should be a museum at this stage. Well surely this building should be an adjunct to it.

    I think it would be wrong to destroy this building. One of the final and most significant acts of the Easter Rising took part in that house and it would be a disgrace to tear it down, especially to make way for a commercial development.

    Anyone who has been on Moore St and the area around will know its a pretty rough looking part of the city but I think any regeneration should incorporate the house.

      Considering those damn Trinity "southern unionists" were able to get Carsons birthplace listed, surely it shouldn't be too hard to save this. I am surprised the Shinners aren't all over it already.

        I didnt know they marked Carsons birthplace.

        Ah well, I suppose we should know where traitors were born as well as Patriots.

          ICUN that's an unfair comment.
          Traitors betray a country they previously pledged allegiance to. I don't think Carson ever did that.

          This is the History section, not politics. Please bear that in mind.

            I don't see any good reason why Carson's birthplace should not have been marked with or without the influence of the "southern unionists". I think that 16 Moore St should be preserved and the GPO turned into a museum because they are hugely significant places in Irish history even though I believe that the 1916 Rising was a disaster for Ireland and it's leaders little short of lunatics. Thta's a historical not a political observation by the way.

            I doubt that SF would want to preserve the place that the 1916 leaders surrendered. Their interest in history is to manipulate it to justify IRA terrorism and so on.
