New Kennedy Center Announced at Ancestral Home in Ireland

A Kennedy visitor and exhibition center is slated to open in Wexford in time for the 50th anniversary of John F Kennedy’s visit to Ireland in June 1963.

The center will be located at the Kennedy family’s ancestral home in Dunganstown, near New Ross, Co Wexford.

Descendants of the Kennedy family currently own the house and site.

Announcing the project, Ireland’s Minister of State Brian Hayes said: “As St Patrick’s Day approaches much international focus will be trained on Ireland, and great goodwill generated. What better way to promote tourism than to stimulate, in particular, the vast market in the USA where the Kennedy legacy is so revered?.”

“Undoubtedly, one of the greatest names in this respect is president John F Kennedy, whose great-grandfather left New Ross for the US in 1848.”
