After years of waiting for new offices, Dublin Corporation workers want work to start immediately on building civic offices at the Wood Quay site.

Hundreds of Dublin Corporation workers packed into City Hall to protest at the delay in the construction of new civic offices. Disgruntled by the dispute over the Wood Quay site, they feel that their needs have been overlooked and say that the government has given in to the archaeologists and protesters. 

As a reaction to the delay, the protesters handed a protest note to the City Manager, John Molloy on the steps of City Hall. The note called for work to start immediately on building new office blocks at Wood Quay. 

At the moment the corporation workers claim that they have to deal with office overcrowding, and some areas which are infested with mice. Alice Moore, spokeswoman for the workers, says that the workers have always shown support for the dig at the Wood Quay site and that they have an understanding of its cultural heritage importance. After twelve years of waiting the workers feel that the workers need to come first.
