Shannon

29 June 1963

As President Kennedy’s visit came to an end he was heard to remark: “I wish I could stay here for another week, or another month”. The welcome he had received from the Irish people had touched him and he was truly sad to be leaving Ireland. He had one last engagement and that was to take place at Shannon airport.
