Moynihan welcomes DCC Iveagh Markets planning decision
Labour Party General Election candidate for Dublin South Central, Councillor Rebecca Moynihan, has welcomed the Dublin City Council decision to throw out the planning application for the Iveagh Markets.
Councillor Moynihan said:
“I completely welcome the decision of Dublin City Council planning to declare invalid the application for the Iveagh Markets.
“The current lease owner of the site has had over twenty years to develop this historic site, yet there has been little to no development on the land and no amount of PR spin can change this fact.
“The Iveagh Markets have fallen into a serious state of dereliction. It is time for the City Council to step in and develop this site and bring it back into use as a fully functional market in line with the history of the area.
“There’s a real need for market space over that area. Taking back and developing the Iveagh Markets will be a complete game changer for the Francis Street and Liberties area.”
