Ireland | Court rules buildings not part of historic site of 1916 Uprising

The Court of Appeal has overturned a declaration that buildings and sites on and around Dublin’s Moore Street are a 1916 Rising battlefield site comprising a national monument.


The High Court had no jurisdiction under section 2 of the National Monuments Act to declare the buildings and site were a “national” monument because that was ultimately a “political and policy choice”, the three-judge court ruled.
