Moore Street, Dublin 2
Moore Street is a street in central Dublin, Ireland, off Henry Street,
one of Ireland's main shopping streets. The famous Moore Street open air
fruit and vegetable market is Dublin's oldest food market.
Many Dubliners have a great affection for Moore Street, and especially its vendors. The market there is considered to be a famous landmark on the northside of the city. The people who work the stalls have a witty and friendly reputation; they and their food stalls are Dublin institutions; and they speak in a strong Dublin accent.
Rebels commanded by Patrick Pearse surrendered to British forces on 30 April 1916 from a terraced house on Moore Street after the failed Easter Rising. Dublin City Council planned from 1998 to demolish the terrace to redevelop the area, but this was opposed by groups who held these premises to be an important part of Irish history, some referring to the location as "Ireland's Alamo". Numbers 14-17 Moore Street were declared a national monument in 2007, guaranteeing their retention.
However, plans for a €1.25 billion retail and residential scheme nearby on O'Connell Street were controversial. At Easter Rising commemorations in April 2009, opponents of the scheme contended that it would involve major alterations to numbers 14-17 and pledged to challenge it at forthcoming public hearings
