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.
