Note(s)Private housing shifted in the 1950s from being done on an ad hoc basis to planning in greater numbers by builders. In 1950 ten private houses were built by G&T Crampton on Whitethorn Road, Clonskeagh. By the 1960s, the rate of private housing building outstripped local authority homes for the first time.
