T&J Macken - Building Contractors

This photo of T&J Macken, Building Contractors has been on display at the checkout at Irish Building Supplies (IBS) in Patrick Street for years. I scanned it today in the hope that the forum would find it interesting and maybe someone could put names to those in the frame - or know someone who can. A caption at the rere indicates that it was taken at Carysfort Convent in 1936

Around 30 years ago I worked with a man who had been in the building trade for many years,he wasn"t a great fan of mackens and said when he worked the sites this was a saying amongst some of the tradesmen "get packen heres macken"

We never got any names for this photo. My old pal worked for Mackens most of his working life. He is late 90's now and his sight is fading but I would love to be able to tell him about this photo. Has any one any ideas ...I know the easy option is to go into IBS and ask but,...who wants easy options?????
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.
