A plan to breathe new life into Dublin’s Moore Street with extra trading stalls at weekends has been branded “pointless” and “too little, too late” by current traders.

The once-vibrant stalls, and the sound of the sales pitches of the fruit, vegetable, meat and fish sellers, brought a unique character to the north inner city. But in recent years the number of shoppers and traders has dwindled and the street has gone stale and quiet.
