On the Grain Store Loft

John Cummins

Just across the road from JFK platform on the quay in New Ross was a big grain store to which my father sold corn. We got special access to the store and had the most wonderful view through the window to the President and there was no secret service heavies to be seen.When some months later we were shattered by his assassination from a similar spot, we wondered was it as easy for Lee Harvey Oswald.
