Independent Publisher Award Finalist, and Winner of the Silver Award from the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association for editorial content, interior and cover design, this book is the richly detailed story of President Kennedy’s 1963 visit to Ireland. Follow along to each of the places he visited, meet the people he met, and relive the events and proceedings - some more chaotic than anticipated –that honored the first Irish Catholic American president.

Exhaustively researched from written and oral sources, the book unspools a memorable tale of a joyful presidential tour that was one of the highlights of JFK’s life and presidency and that cemented a bond with a land and people who were then taking their first steps on the global stage.
