Independent TD Maureen O’Sullivan warned that the State could be an international laughing stock with either a derelict site surrounding the historic building for 2016’s Rising’s centenary commemoration “or else a huge shopping centre which would dwarf the national monument”.
The Dublin Central TD said the Dutch authorities “would not allow something similar at the Anne Frank House. The Polish and German authorities would not allow fast food takeaways beside Auschwitz or Dachau.”
Ms O’Sullivan warned: “We are not protecting our national monument by not having these other plans to support the general area around it.”
