A dilapidated old shop where leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising took refuge after fleeing the blazing GPO has been made a national monument. Padraig Pearse, the wounded James Connolly, Thomas Clarke, Joseph Plunkett and Sean MacDermott made their last stand in the building at 16 Moore Street before surrendering to British troops on 29 April. A document signed by environment minister Dick Roche has now officially recognized the inconspicuous little shop alongside the Ilac centre for its role in Irish history.
