Snippet Contents:

For the past 100 years we have drawn inspiration from their heroism and as we are now in these difficult times we should still draw inspiration from them into the future, yet, a Government in this country would even consider not securing the Moore Street battlefield site. The buildings are not just bricks and mortar; the area is a symbol of why we exist as a country and as a people. The environs of Moore Street make up a very important part of our story as a nation because from that block with its small rooms and lanes emerged this Parliament. Every person who stands and speaks in this Chamber owes allegiance to those who occupied the environs of Moore Street. Future generations will condemn any politician or Government that would allow the vandalisation of this precious monument.
Seán Mac Diarmada came from north Leitrim. His cottage is preserved as it was when he was alive. The vandalisation that will be visited on the Moore Street area is as bad as what Seán Mac Diarmada would see if he were alive today and looking out his window. He would see the beautiful rolling hills and drumlins but in 20 years' time he would perhaps see fracking wells. Imagine that. How would he feel if we were to vandalise that beautiful area for the benefit of the very few? If the men and women of 1916, who showed such courage and leadership, came back, what would they say about the vandalisation of that area of Moore Street? We must stop the penny-pinching. One can get shopping malls a hundred a dime in any country in the world but there is one and only one battlefield site in the centre of Dublin. It should be there for the next century and the next thousand years. We should do the right thing by it.
