President Kennedy Visits Dublin in 1963

Here is another great old photo of President Kennedy visiting Dublin in 1963. This was taken on June 29th that year and less than five month later he would be gunned down in Dallas, Texas. We’ve posted on this topic a couple of times here and here. We also shared a great photo of Kennedy’s wedding from 1953.

The photo was taken in Dublin, the same week he gave his famous Cold War speech in Berlin. It’s important to note the fact that Kennedy was the first sitting president to visit the Emerald Isle.
