My aunt Winifred Carney was present with James Connolly on Moore Street.

I live in the United States and I am now able to purchase a Bond to help purchase Moore Street.  The following video describes how each of us can get involved locally and internationally to save this historic site.  Bonds will be refunded if the site purchase is not successful.

Directed and edited by Marcus Howard. As the laneways of Ireland's 1916 history are about to be destroyed, a movement has begun by the diaspora and the Irish community to buy Moore Street back. Launched by the Lord Mayor of Dublin and Frank Allen in The Mansion House and with a number of relatives from 1916 the 1916 Moore Street Bond Scheme was launched. You have a chance to be able to buy back a piece of Irish history by buying a bond and not letting the street be taken over by a shopping center in place of our valuable Irish history and heritage.
