"The excellent Building Healthy Homes: Dublin Corporation's first housing schemes, 1880-1925 ... Although this handsome hardback has a somewhat academic appearance, the authors tell their story in clear and simple prose, which makes what could have been a difficult work highly accessible to the general reader." History Ireland, May-June 2022 

“Ruth McManus and Joseph Brady have been doing sterling work on the question of housing in Dublin for some time now. Their output is phenomenal ... Building Healthy Homes, deals exclusively with the work of Dublin Corporation in attempting to solve the dire housing situation among the poor of the city inherited from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries ... This very readable and highly illustrated volume makes our daily experience of our city and suburbs a bit more comprehensible”. The Dublin Historical Record, Vol. 75. 2022
