Jim Kenny began by telling me the story of the Kennys` arrival in Ballincumber in the early 1800s. Carpentry was their craft and Jim’s father worked locally in the Hackett Estate, his expertise lay in engineering, and he was very well equipped to handle the steam engines for threshing. He operated these machines far and wide for the Hackett Estate. He was involved in the Labour Movement, and was a great admirer of Jim Larkin. He was to lose his job at the Hackett Estate because of this involvement. He later went on to work with the County Council. Jim’s vivid memories of the Blueshirts were recorded., and the recording ended with the history of the street and the house in which Jim now lives.
