Loved this detailed account of his visit July 29 2012
By Rosaleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A well written and highly detailed account of JFK's visit to the auld sod. Easy to read, lots of photos and supporting materials. At the same time, it wasn't just a dry account of the facts, it folded in historical references and the emotional response of the country to weave together a well rounded account of the trip.

JFK in Ireland Sept. 27 2012
By majolie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I saw this book in a shop in Ireland when we did a tour of the country last summer and I was very happy to find it on your site when we came back home.
I did like this book because I feel interested in the relationships between Ireland and the USA and now I know what places President Kennedy visited, where he stopped...
It's also very interesting to read about the preparation of that trip, the security linked to it. Good book!

Great read, full of interesting asides Sept. 10 2012
By LeaR - Published on Amazon.com
This is only the second "Kennedy" book I've read and it was a fascinating insight into the Kennedy phenomonen. Anybody with even a passing interest in Irish American politics will enjoy this book, as will the more seasoned politics/modern history reader. The first hand accounts from those who were there during Kennedy's heady four-day visit to Ireland truly make this book, as does Tubridy's great story-telling style (he is the presenter of the prime-time Saturday night show in Ireland with a wonderful wit.) Kennedy's visit is said to have changed the man completely, but those four days also changed Ireland irreversibily, giving the country a new found confidence and standing in the world. Terrific read.

Amazing Book March 9 2013
By Cheddar Frank - Published on Amazon.com

This book was incredible. Amazing details of President Kennedy's trip to Ireland. This books extremely powerful. Seeing quotes from Kennedy saying he'd love to come back and realizing he'd be gone in a few months is powerful. The pictures in this book were incredible as well. Can't recommend this book enough.
