A new initiative to resolve the controversy over 1916 monuments on Dublin's Moore St has been agreed by Dublin city councillors.

Councillors have this evening voted to set up an advisory group to report back on the future of the buildings where the rebels made their last stand.

Four of the buildings on the Moore St terrace have been designated national monuments.

These will be incorporated into plans for a massive shopping centre development.

But relatives of the 1916 leaders want the whole terrace and surrounding lane ways preserved as a battlefield site.
