The relatives of the signatories of the 1916 Proclamation (the document issued by Irish revolutionary leaders during the Easter Rising) plan to meet with the board of the Irish National Asset Management Agency (Nama) to discuss plans to partially demolish historical buildings on Dublin’s Moore Lane.

The buildings, which have been declared unsafe by Dublin City Council, are adjacent to the General Post Office, and are said to have been occupied by the leaders of the Rising.

Members of the Connolly, Clarke, Ceannt, MacDonagh and Plunkett families will meet with NAMA chairman Frank Daly and chief executive Brendan MacDonagh tomorrow.

The 19-century buildings at Moore Lane have been ordered be lowered in height to make them safe by Dublin City Council.

The buildings form part of the previous Carlton Cinema site due to be redeveloped by property developer Joe O’Reilly. However he relatives' group  will meet with Nama to express their opposition to O’Reilly being facilitated 'in any way' by the agency to proceed with his 800,000 square foot development.
