A lively tale of the people of Newbridge and their long march from old crumbling cottages to properly planned housing.

Author signed

Newbridge is a relatively new town, having sprung up around the British Army barracks built between 1813 and 1819. At the dawn of the 20th century many inhabitants lived in poorly built cottages, with no running water and toilets.

The provision of social housing by the Town Commission, Board of Health and the Kildare County Council improved the living conditions of the people of Newbridge and brought it form a sleepy market town to the thriving metropolis it is today.

This book is 'peopled' with the rich characters of Newbridge, the Morans, the Dempseys, Daunes, Durneys, Murphys, O'Briens amongst others.
