Ireland | Government: court went too far declaring entire 1916 Uprising neighborhood historic site

The State has argued it was a “bridge far too far” for the High Court to declare that various buildings and sites on and around Dublin’s Moore Street are a 1916 Rising battlefield site comprising a national monument.


The High Court was not entitled, in judicial review proceedings, to declare an “entire precinct” of the city a national monument, with “serious consequences” both for the property rights of a company intending to develop the site and for the Minister for Arts and Heritage, argued Michael McDowell SC for the Minister.
