A firm of experts has recommended to Dublin City Council that a premises on the city's Moore Street be listed as a protected structure.

16 Moore Street is thought to be the final headquarters of the leaders of the 1916 Rising.

The recommendation has been welcomed by Fine Gael Councillor Gerry Breen, who said 16 Moore Street was a building rich with history and significance for Irish people and the future citizens of Ireland.

The firm also recommended that a detailed survey of the building be carried out.
