Michael Reddy was the Irish Parliamentary Party MP for Birr, King's County. His niece Amy Kenny was born in about 1900, the daughter of a clerk for peace for Co. Galway. Her uncle took her to dinner in the House of Commons when she was sixteen so that she could be the toast of the Irish members. She used to go riding with Lady Gregory's son Robert. She did not like Edward Martyn because "he never did anything for his peasants". She married an economist who was also friendly with John Meynard Keynes.
