Abstract

Under the Irish Land (Provision for Sailors and Soldiers) Act of 1919, inspired by the British Government's policy for post-war reconstruction, over 4000 houses for ex-servicemen were provided in Ireland during the 1920s and 1930s, a time of acute housing shortage. Building was initiated by the Irish Local Government Board and continued after independence by the Irish Sailors' and Soldiers' Land Trust with members appointed by the Dublin, Belfast and London Governments. Some houses were built in the countryside, but most in small estates near cities and towns. Designed on garden city lines, they helped to set improved standards for working class housing.
