Mr. John Daly,
I enclose correspondence received from Sile de Valera, T.D., Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands in relation to 16 Moore Street.
Unfortunately, John, the protection of this building is a matter for the planning authorities and the Minister does not feel it would be appropriate for her to intervene at this stage.
I am sorry that the news is not more positive on this occasion and if you feel I can be help to in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me again at this Office.
Mary Harney, T.D.,
Tanaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
