Dublin City Council has spent nearly € 1.5m on the College Green Plaza project so far.

At a meeting last night, a number of counsellers say the project 'must not be abandoned'.

The project was rejected by An Bord Pleanala three weeks ago, due to concerns about traffic and transportation.

Plans for the plaza would see a ban on all traffic including buses and taxis from accessing Dame Street through College Green.
