Conor Kenny, who lives and works between London and Bristol, but is originally from Ballincar, Rosses Point was recently involved in humanitarian work in the well publicised ‘Calais Jungle’ camp for migrants, through the Humming Bird project – which offers aid to those displaced by war.

He told the Sligo Weekender this week. “The way I got involved with the Humming Bird project was through friends I went to university with who set up this project. It was something I thought was fantastic and wanted to support.”
