HOPE FOR 1916
BUILDINGS
AS TAOISEACH
AGREES DEPT.
WAS WRONG

As Local News offers Taoiseach and Arts Minister proof that Monuments men mis-dated Moore Street battlefield buildings, will they stand back as bulldozers roll in?

SOURCES close to the Department of the Taoiseach say they are “shocked” at errors that mis-dated parts of the 1916 battlefield. They may now be razed to make way for the likes of Burger King and Pennys.

But a campaign by Local News, starting a year ago, may yet save Nos 18, 19 and 13 Moore Street, Moore Lane, and perhaps even the entire 1916 battlefield area.

 

Since our story on the site appeared in Local News North, Aug 7, we have been told by government sources that the original advice, given to then Arts Minister Dick Roche, was wrong: he was told that just 14–17 were dated 1916 or before. Now we know that nearby houses were too. MORE »

Story proving that now, both

Arts and Taoiseach’s depart-

ments now know that most, if

not all of Moore Street’s

east terrace is part of the

pre-20th century 1916

Battlefield site.

• STUNNING Kellie Breen, featured recently in the south edition of the paper, has found a new photographer and a new mood in her stunning collection of portfolio pictures.

 

And already, these beautiful bromides have bought the Ballyfermot lass catalogue and catwalk work.

 

Now, however, she wants to raise her profile with a “face of” campaign. And we reckon she’s just the lady to raise an Irish product profile...and a male heartbeat.

 

We’ll be keeping an eye on her progress...
