Description

In 1933 an Englishman leased a derelict British cavalry barracks in co. Kildare from the Irish government to build a rope factory. When war came in 1939 Ireland remained neutral and faced both German invasion and a British trade embargo. Desperate measures were needed to ensure that Irish farmers never ran out of twine to gather the harvest.
