Willie Macken was proud to trace his family’s roots which showed that the wonderful musician Seamus Ennis was a relative. Seamus spent the last years of his life living near the Macken home and Willie has vivid memories of Seamus Ennis and his music. Willie worked for the ESB for 25 years, bringing electricity to many homes in the area for the first time. He described some of the local crafts and the necessity of self-sufficiency during the Economic War.
