Moore Street campaigners are preparing to do battle again today.
Campaigners, TDs, Councillors and 1916 relatives will meet at the Court of Appeal to defend last year's ruling which declared the 1916 battlefield site 'a national monument'.
The Heritage Department is appealing the decision, and the case is soon expected to end up in the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, Patrick Cooney - from the Save 16 Moore Street Committee - says they are ready for anything.
He explained: "We're not backing off now - and, as we've said before publicly, if the appeal is upheld and we essentially lose... we will immediately appeal the appeal.
"We, the campaign, and the vast majority of people we believe, don't want a kind of Celtic Tiger, out-of-date, overscaled shopping centre - they want something better."
Sinn Féin's Peadar Tóibín also criticised the Heritage Department's decision to appeal.
He argued: "Moore Street could so easily be developed into a vibrant, internationally recognised, historic and cultural quarter, which pays tribute to the men and women of 1916. It could become an energetic centre for the arts, culture, heritage and the Irish language. It could become a haven for tourists and locals alike."
