Keep Moore St going strong
Traders on Moore Street have been told to expect an overhaul of their city centre place of business.
A new code of practice, specific trading areas, a crackdown on illegal sale of contraband and new street furniture are planned by Dublin City Council.
The Moore Street market dates back to the 1700s and is as intrinsically Dublin as a pint of plain or Molly Malone.
While business practices change and the world becomes a smaller place through technological advances, it is of the utmost importance that our civic leaders do all they can to protect Dublin's heritage and identity.
The Buckley sisters have been selling fish there for more than 50 years, while others are fifth generation traders.
The traders on Moore Street deserve all the support they can get, from both their elected representatives and us, their customers, in very challenging times.
