Reply To: St. Kevins Cottages??
Have a look at ‘Dublin through Space and Time by Angrett Simms and Joe Brady. It does not mention the cottages you are looking for, but it would be a good reference point to start as it deals with the Iveagh Trust scheme. It will probably refer you to look at work by Frederick Aalen, which I know dealt in detail with this part of the city during the 19th century. Best of luck with your research.
