Moore Street has been included in the list of projects that have been designated funding as part of the €430m investment in Dublin developments.
The €121m renewal project for North Inner City Dublin announced today includes public realm renewal works for Moore Street such as lighting, public art, paving, stalls, and signage; and structural and restoration works to 14-17 Moore Street to rejuvenate the historic street.
Ciarán Cuffe MEP for Dublin said: “I’m pleased to see funding for regeneration projects allocated to Dublin, and particularly funds earmarked for restoration works on Moore Street.
“It is crucial that the voices of market traders and local communities are heard in the discussion of how the monies will be spent.
“The additional funding for improving Parnell Square aligns well with the Green Party Vision for the wider Moore Street area.
“Hopefully, it will no longer be a racetrack for speeding motorists. Public realm improvements benefit everyone, and these funds can provide a real boost for Dublin’s inner city.”
Councillor Donna Cooney, who chaired the expert group on the Moore Street market and the Lord Mayor’s Forum, said she was “delighted” with the news.
“Moore Street has huge potential and this will help reactivate one of the most important trading streets in the city.
“I am also really delighted with the funds for the historic 14-17 Moore Street buildings.
“My relative Elizabeth O’Farrell was in these houses in 1916 and she carried the flag of surrender out of 15 Moore Street after the Council of War.
“This funding is the beginning of a protection of 1916 heritage and a revitalisation of the market.”
