I heard about Nail Making from Agnes Brennan. She has a little farm. She was born in Ballinakill. She spent her life in Ballinakill. She saw her brother working at Nail Making. Nail Making was carried on about forty years ago. She was about thirty years of age at that time. She was living in Chapel Street Ballinakill Laoighis. I wrote the story in this book on the 2nd December 1937.
