Overview


This is a day-by-day, hour-by-hour account of President Kennedy's visit to Ireland in late June 1963:  the places he visited; the people he met – political and cultural luminaries and average Irish citizens alike; the throngs who lined the roads to catch a glimpse of him or gathered to hear him speak; and the events that crowded his schedule.

Exhaustively researched from written and oral sources, the book tells a memorable tale of the president's ”homecoming” to a people and land long etched in his heart and at last on the verge of taking their place in the modern world's politics and economy.

Editorial Reviews

Tim Pat Coogan
"When I read Jim Carroll's book on Kennedy's Irish visit, I understood the meaning of the word 'watershed.' The visit was a highlight in the continuing story of the Irish diaspora. Read it."
O'Clery
"Detailed, minute-by-minute account of JFK's historic visit to Ireland, exhaustively researched ... brings alive the excitement of the first American presidential visit to a country still struggling for recognition as an independent nation."
Steven Thomma
"This is a splendid book ... Rich in detail, it is informed by the people who were there, both Irish and American, and artfully told by a writer with a keen understanding of the man, the moment in history, and the place."
