The Save 16 Committee

The Save 16 Committee (hereafter ‘Save 16’) was formed at a public meeting in 2005 with the specific aim of protecting, restoring and preserving No.16 Moore Street in its context as an appropriate memorial to the events and people associated with the end of the 1916 Rising. Members include several dedicated activists, including descendants of participants in the Rising such as John Connolly, a grandson of James Connolly, two great-granddaughters of James Connolly, and a great-grandson of The O’Rahilly. The Committee was convened not least in response to the alarming fact that planning permission had been granted to a previous owner for the demolition of No.16.

The Committee made representations to elected officials, property owners and others and succeeded in preventing the demolition of No.16 and in getting it placed on the Register of Protected Structures. Then, in 2007, Save 16 successfully petitioned the Minister for the Environment to have the site comprising No.s 14 – 17 Moore Street designated a National Monument.
