In this recording local historian Jim Kenny takes me to the Hackett estate, Castlearmstrong in the vicinity of Killintubber, where he recalls the long history of the townland. All the genealogy associated with the house is described. Finally, the politics behind the dividing up of the land by the Land Commission in 1928 was revealed.
