Motion submitted in the name of Cllr Hazel de Nortúin and Cllr Cat O'Driscoll:-

“This SPC will agree to request that the relevant section in Dublin City Council engage with Diageo in exploring the re-opening of the Guinness Theatre in Dublin 8.  The theatre has a capacity of 452 seats, similar to the recent survey for a 500 seater venue in the city.

The Council will establish what Diageo has planned for the building and to further emphasise the provision of community gain by corporations in Dublin City – as set out in the Dublin City Development Plan – and encourage a transparent dialogue with the Arts Department.

The Council should also seek information on the structural composition of the building to further establish if work needs to be carried out to safeguard the building from any damage due to its vacancy.”
