Moore Street The Last Stand? Documentary

Moore Street The Last Stand?

Directed and edited by Marcus Howard. Moore Street was the last stand of the Volunteers who fought in 1916. Numbers 18 to 19 Moore Street are threatened to be demolished despite some of the rooms in question having historical significance. In place there are plans for yet another shopping centre for Dublin while destroying elements which could have historical and tourism potential for future generations. Interviewees including relatives of those who fought in 1916 are asked about the disputed historical significance of these houses and if they have a message for Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht Jimmy Deenihan.
