The cabinet's signed off on plans to preserve the site of the last stand of the 1916 rising.

The Heritage Minister Jimmy Deenihan's received cabinet approval for the full repair and conservation of 14 to 17 Moore Street in Dublin city as well as the building of a commemorative centre there.

However, there has been a mixed reaction from the families of the 1916 leaders and their supporters.

Earlier, the Sinn Fein leader called for an urgent meeting with the Minister saying that while the plans are welcome, they don't cover all of the concerns of the relatives.

Gerry Adams says the Minister's order paves the way for the shopping centre to be built.

And, James Connolly's great-grandson, James Connolly Heron, says he believes the decision is a bad one.
