Moore Street is a street in central Dublin, Ireland, off Henry Street, one of Ireland's main shopping streets. The famous Moore Street open air fruit and vegetable market is Dublin's oldest food market. The market there is considered to be a famous landmark on the northside of the city. Moore Street was the subject of the second CIVIC LIFE film by filmmakers Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, starring members of the Dublin-based African production company, Arambe.Easter RisingIrish Volunteers commanded by Patrick Pearse surrendered to British forces on 30 April 1916, from a terrace of houses on Moore Street at the ending of the Easter Rising. Five of the seven signatories of the Irish Proclamation of Independence—Patrick Pearse, James Connolly, Thomas Clarke, Joseph Plunkett and Sean MacDermott, as well as future leader Michael Collins—surrendered from the terrace.Planning controversyDublin City Council planned from 1998 to demolish the terrace to redevelop the area, but this was opposed by groups who held this terrace and the battlefield trail running from the GPO down Moore Lane and Henry Street and into Moore Street to be an important part of Irish history, some referring to the location as "Ireland's Alamo". The National Graves Association began its campaign in 2002 after been alerted to the removal of a commemorative plaque from the facade of No 16 by concerned citizen Patrick Cooney which led on to the setting up the "Save 16 Moore Street committee" in 2005. Numbers 14-17 Moore Street were declared a national monument in 2007, guaranteeing their retention.
