      Paddy Shaffrey’s ‘Buildings of Irish Towns’ and ‘Irish Countryside Buildings’ by The O’Brien Press has some good stuff.

      ‘Urban Ireland’, also from O’Brien has a bit too. Early 1980s, written by Dermot Stokes but not mentioned on the cover. Might have been a school book? Produced by the ‘Curriculum Development Unit’.

      But it really depends on who you ask- the IRDA would give you a very different version of it from the one you’d get from me. But then again, I’m a Dub who doesn’t understand the plight of…etc etc.
