Call to preserve 1916 monument

Sir -- Your report on the Nama Wives Club (Sunday Independent, Dec. 26, 2010), makes for disturbing reading for concerned relatives of the 1916 leaders and others committed to the campaign to preserve, protect and defend the 1916 National Monument on Moore Street in Dublin city centre.

For some time now we have been seeking State intervention to ensure that the designated monument is preserved in its entirety and not be treated as some form of commodity or collateral for bad debt.

The fact that the current owner of the monument, property developer Joe O'Reilly, is reported as having transferred certain assets into his wife's name is alarming, to put it mildly.
