Brian Kenny is an Irish writer with a passion for history, politics and left of centre ideas. My particular interest is in writing about less well known Irish people who have been involved in left wing, trade union and socialist politics in Ireland in the 20th century. The big guys can write for themselves, but the less well known need to be brought into the limelight a bit more. To date I have written 3 biographies - Joe Deasy, Sam Nolan and Tony Heffernan- all of whom were active on the left in Ireland over the last 80 years. Joe Deasy. for example, was active from the 1940s until his recent death in early 2013. They all have great stories to tell , both about Ireland, and what it was like to stand up against a conservative society, dominated by the Catholic church and right wing politicians. Essentially, I am writing about people who were up agains the odds and fought to make a difference. Sometimes they lost but they kept going. They are all worth remembering and its my job to make sure their stories are told.
