Welcome Mr President and baby sister Anne

Emily McCormack

My sister Anne will be 50 years old on June the 25th. I will be 60 on July 2nd. During presidents Kennedy s visit to Ireland my mum who is now a hale and hearty 83 give birth to my sister Anne, while my mam was in hospital I stayed with my nana Hickey, president Kennedy visited Greenpark in Limerick. I was ten at the time, I remember standing on my grans wall waving at the hellicopter as it passed over the house. I remember later that day going to one of the local shops and the shopkeeper who had shaken hands with the President showing us his hand and saying he wiould never wash it again. It only feels like yesterday
