The Ballymun estate in Dublin, Ireland was built in the late 1960\'s in response to Dublin\'s housing crisis. The estate included 7 High rise tower blocks containing 90 flats on 15 floors. In the aftermath of the 50th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising the towers were named in honour of the 7 signatories of the 1916 proclamation of Independance, Pearse, Connolly, Ceannt,Clarke, MacDonagh, McDermott and Plunkett. Now the Towers are being demolished by Ballymun Regeneration Limited and the residents moved to new houses in Ballymun.But B.R.L have no plan to retain the 7 Names in the new Ballymun estate.Our aim is to ensure the names of the seven heroes, who fought for Irish freedom, are remembered in the new ballymun by insisting that B.R.L either, erect a monument commemorating the 7 signatories or name the new streets being built after them.
