Infra-Éireann: Infrastructure and the Architectures of Modernity in Ireland 1916-2016 got a great review in the Irish Times. Professor Hugh Campbell of UCD who wrote the review commented that –

“Perhaps the most important achievement of this book is the manner in which it convincingly links individual works of architecture to the larger narrative of the State’s development. It insists the architecture must be understood in the larger social and political contexts which produce it, and which it then goes on to shape… The book thus stands as an important addition to the historiography of twentieth-century Ireland. More specifically, it will serve as an invaluable resource to anyone interested in the architecture of that period. For the way in which it provides vivid and compelling stories of nation building, it deserves to find a wide readership. It already looks set to become integral to any future study in the field: a new piece of intellectual infrastructure.”
