      Is this just a rumour?

      The Chester Beatty library (as in the 1950’s building) was listed and has now been de-listed and so may be demolished by the new owners?

      If so, why no fuss re. Archers? It has one of the nicest modernist interiors of any public Irish building.

      Please everyone, can we do something?

      Are you sure it was listed? I dont think so as it was advertsised as development land over a year ago….

      Yes another nice building bites the dust.
      (The original one). Surely we could have found a use for it.Hope the neighbours are happy with a lot of apartments instead.

      I’ve contacted the Planning Department of Dublin Corporation. It seems that it is not currently listed. Am awaiting information from other sources as to if it were listed in previous years.

      According to the Corporation

      “The Chester Beatty Museum on Shewsbury Road has never been listed for protection
      in a Dublin City Development Plan. The Museum was considered for inclusion in
      the Dublin City Development Plan 1999 and obtained the temporary protection of
      listing while part of the proposed amendments to the Draft Dublin City
      Development Plan 1999. However, the museum was not successful in being included
      in the final adopted Development Plan.”
