Bank clerk, reporter, correspondent, revolutionary, and volunteer with the Greek military were positions held by MacKenna as he explored his options. His love for the Irish and Greek languages became increasingly important to him. MacKenna translated Plotinus' The Enneads. Neoplatonic Philosophy joined MacKenna's list of passions and loves. His letters and journal entries would be published later by Dodd. MacKenna died in 1934 from failing health. He wanted to die alone and believed nothing followed death.
