There are fears for the stability of what's left of the roof of the Iveagh Market in Dublin after damage sustained during Storm Barra.


The market is at the centre of an ongoing legal dispute over its ownership.


Liberties residents say high winds have collapsed sections of the protected structure's roof in recent days.


Andrew O'Connell from the Reclaim Iveagh Markets Group says the city council must step in and make emergency repairs.


"It's my market, it's your market, everyone in Dublin, everyone in Ireland, it's a market that belongs to everyone.


"It was well built, but once it was handed over to the redevelopment team and they went in with bulldozers, it did massive damage, and because its been lying empty for nearly y20 years, that damage has gotten worse and worse."



It's been lying vacant for over two decades, and council engineers previously put the cost of repairs at up to €30 million.
