The remaining 20 feet of Dublin's medieval wall is to go on display to the public.

The remaining section of the Medieval wall under Dublin's Civic offices at Wood Quay, is to be put on public display next year - for the first time since it was excavated thirty years ago. Amid large protests in the late seventies, most of the wall at Woodquay was taken down to make way for the new Council's offices.

During the excavations on the site at Wood Quay over 80 metres of the medieval wall was removed leaving some 20 metres of the wall standing underneath the council building. 
Donncha O'Dúlaing, Heritage Officer with Dublin City Council, feels that visitors to the wall will get a "great sense of history". Wood Quay campaigner, Anngret Simms, sees this as a symbolic move as "citizenship has a lot to do with shared history". It is also a welcome development for medieval historian Dr. Seán Duffy who describes the wall as the "a hugely important part of the landscape of medieval Dublin".
