Re: Re: Dorset St (Upper)
Redevelopment of Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s house appealed
The Irish Times
Dublin City Council has failed in its duty to protect a symbol of Irish cultural achievement by approving plans to demolish the birthplace of 18th century playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan, according to Senator David Norris. Last month the council granted permission to Shane Murphy for the demolition of the Whig MP’s home at 12 Upper Dorset Street to make way for an apartment block. The building is in a derelict condition and is missing its top two floors. Murphy bought number 12 six months ago and number 13 an adjoining property, which will also be demolished, a year ago.
