National Monuments (The Moore Street Battlefield) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (20 Sep 2018)

Peadar Tóibín: I ask the Minister not to reply to me now but, rather, to send me a short reply by email stating whether she agrees that the Moore Street battlefield site is a national monument. If she, Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin and Independent Deputies all believe it is, let us make it such.

National Monuments (The Moore Street Battlefield) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (20 Sep 2018)

Peadar Tóibín: Members have lauded the campaign groups. The campaign groups want it to be recognised as a national monument. This is Irish politics to the core - saying one thing, embracing a campaign and then doing the opposite. There is no reason commercial development could not take place on the site if it is made a national monument. I want commercial development to take place on it because it will...

National Monuments (The Moore Street Battlefield) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (20 Sep 2018)

Josepha Madigan: I thank all of the Deputies for their contributions. I listened carefully to everything that was said and I acknowledge the more considered contributions that took account of the realities we are putting forward. While I accept the sentiments and the motivation behind Deputy Tóibín's Bill, I reiterate that the Government cannot support it. I will pick up on a couple of points...

National Monuments (The Moore Street Battlefield) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (20 Sep 2018)

Peadar Tóibín: There is great disappointment on this side and among many of the campaigners with regard to the Government's decision on the matter. The only reason Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael would refuse to recognise Moore Street as a national monument is to leave the door open to development in Moore Street that is not in sympathy with a national monument. If that were the case, Members would simply...

The parties will always find a reason. I was told during the Government's appeal of the High Court case that it was not about Moore Street and its importance as a national monument, it was simply about planning issues...
