Housing in Ireland: The A–Z Guide

Dr Lorcan Sirr

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

From ‘Abhaile’ to ‘zoning’, Housing in Ireland: The A–Z Guide sets out over 600 entries on all aspects of housing, from the practical to policy, and from the theoretical to the technical. It is the comprehensive guide to understanding the most important issue to consistently face Ireland over the last 100 years, and which will most likely be with us for the next 100 years.


Housing is not the straightforward subject it is often perceived to be. As the world has become more complex, so too have all aspects of housing. Construction, policy, finance, regulations and legislation have become a much more interdependent set of topics than they once were. At the same time practices and issues evolve, so does the language and terminology around them.

The premise of Housing in Ireland is, therefore, that information is key in achieving desired housing outcomes, whether that is applying for planning permission as an individual, writing an article as a journalist, counting the numbers of houses built as a state body each year, or reforming policy as a minister. Without an understanding of the key issues and terms, success can be elusive.

As housing is a topic that affects almost everybody, the importance of understanding the terminology is not merely for developers, planners, policy-makers and other high-level experts, but also for home-owners, renters, students and representative groups.
