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.

  • We were introduced to Moore Street via a walking tour. This street was one of the major open air fruit/vegetables and flower market in its hay days. Nowadays it has more multi ethnic storefronts. and ...  more »
  • Intersects Henry Street, both filled with shops and life, especially what you prove this point the big Mall in ppoche tens of meters. Back to a more real when there is her Sunday morning market: very cute

  • Mainly love this area. Very diverse both in terms of demographics and products. Fruits and vegetables along with fresh fish available from stalls. Numerous phone shops. Bakery and butcher. Entrance to the neighbouring Ilac Centre shopping mall. Large (and recently rebuilt) Lidl -almost always busy, complete with bakery. Overall a very satisfying area. Visit it several times a week myself. Hope all this is useful.
  • Not very clean, especially when the fish is being sold outside, the smell of it kills me... The fruits are not cheaper than Lidl and Aldi which are nearby. The only good thing is when you find a real farmer and you can by fresh vegetables and support local farmers rather than some GMO imported from another side of the planet.
  • Moore Street is an area with huge historical value unfortunately this is not plainly evident and more needs to be done to show off this fact. However Moore Street has a more recent history as the location of a fresh fruit, veg and fish market for several decades. In recent years it has changed with the population of Ireland and is now multinational and has many phone and multinational shops. It is also the site of one of the main entrances into the Ilac centre which contains a good range of shops, a library and a mini chapel.
  • Right in the heart of Dublin. Great fresh produce
  • Good for local mobile shops and repairing centers. You can also buy cheap fruit s and vegetables but they last only for a day.
