JFK IN IRELAND: Four Days that Changed a President


JFK IN IRELAND: Four Days that Changed a President

RYAN TUBRIDY    Book Number: 71747    Product format: Paperback

The idolised, handsome and glamorous John Fitzgerald Kennedy, great-grandson of Irish immigrants, was the first and only Irish-Catholic American to be elected President of the USA. In this fully illustrated book, complete with never-before-seen photographs and stories, is the story of JFK's memorable four day trip to his homeland in June 1963, five months before he was tragically assassinated. In this seminal historical publication, Tubridy captures the affection Kennedy felt for his fellow Irishmen and his Irish heritage and portrays how these sentiments were reciprocated by a nation enchanted by the young President. There was his much-vaunted visit for lunch with distant family in Dunganstown, the garden party that descended into chaos, formal speeches to the Dáil, and the casual encounters as he stopped to shake the hands with the waiting public, much to the dismay of his beleaguered secret service officers. Kennedy described it as the best four days of his life. 302pp in huge heavyweight paperback with many colour illustrations, facsimiles of letters, contemporary b/w photos and more.
