|Title:||Contextualising the urban legacies of the Easter 1916 Rising on Moore Street (Dublin): Destruction, reconstruction and the politics of planning||Authors:||Moore-Cherry, Niamh; Ó Corráin, Daithí||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/8495||Date:||2016||Online since:||2017-05-10T09:47:31Z||Abstract:||This commentary explores the spatialities, and in particular, the urban legacies, of the 1916 Rising from the perspectives of 1916 and 2016. The focus is on Dublin's north inner city and especially O’Connell (formerly Sackville) Street and the adjacent thoroughfares – the epicentre of the 1916 Rising. This commentary is presented as three short papers: the first addresses the immediate post-Rising legacy and explains how and why the O’Connell Street area was speedily reconstructed despite the stringencies of the First World War; the second examines the centennial legacy, recent efforts to preserve the memory of 1916 and their broader socio-spatial impacts; the third reflects on how the seminal historical event of the 1916 Rising has shaped and continues to shape livelihoods, politics and the built form of the city. The commentary concludes by highlighting the value of an inter-disciplinary approach to understanding the evolution of urban spaces and outlines some of the broader implications and lessons for planning, heritage and policy-making.||Funding Details:||Irish Research Council||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Geographical Society of Ireland||Journal:||Irish Geography||Volume:||49||Issue:||2||Start page:||103||End page:||124||Copyright (published version):||2016 the Authors||Keywords:||Dublin; 1916 Rising; Urban governance; Urban reconstruction; Temporality||Other versions:||http://irishgeography.ie/index.php/irishgeography/issue/view/113||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0075-0778||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
