Joe Brady publishes new book on the historical geography of Dublin Entitled Dublin 1930-1950: the emergence of the modern city (Four Courts Press), Joe Brady's latest book has been particularly well received. The book is the fifth volume in a superb series on the making of Dublin City. The poet, playwright and novelist Dermot Bolger has recently described Joe's book as "wonderfully illuminating in evoking an era of great change in Dublin...a magnificent work of research and scholarship and also a fascinating read for any Dubliner"
