The annual Kennedy Summer School took place in September in New Ross, County Wexford. Over 30 guest speakers, including the U.S. Ambassador Kevin O’Malley, attended a series of ten debates relating to Irish and American politics in President John F. Kennedy’s ancestral hometown.
“It is quite remarkable to think that 53 years after President Kennedy stood on the quay here in New Ross, we are still coming together in his name,” said Ambassador O’Malley. “There are few presidents who could lay claim to leaving such an illustrious imprint on the world, but then there were few presidents like Kennedy.” ♦
