Protest seeks to save Cobblestone

Hundreds of people took part in a protest in Dublin ,objecting to proposals to build a nine-storey hotel around The Cobblestone pub in Dublin's north inner city.cobblestone1021

While the developers say the pub will be preserved as part of the plan, there is concern about the impact it could have on the traditional music venue.
The Cobblestone Pub in Smithfield square has been running since 1988 by the Mulligan family and is a central part of the city's traditional music scene.
Earlier this month, Marron Estates applied to build a nine-storey, 114-bedroom hotel at the site on North King Street and while the application says it will retain The Cobblestone pub as a protected structure, there is concern about the impact the development will have on the size, viability and character of the venue.

 

Tomás Mulligan, the son of the owner Tom Mulligan, grew up in the apartment over the bar. He said the plans would result in the loss of the venue’s back bar, where live music is currently performed, and the beer garden and smoking area to the rear, reducing the capacity by 70%.
Around 26,000 people have so far signed an online petition objecting to the plans for the site and today hundreds of protesters marched from Smithfield to Dublin City Council's Civic Offices to highlight their concerns.
