John Fitzgerald Kennedy - JFK
JFK - A life-size bronze statue of former US president John F Kennedy was unveiled in the home of his ancestors in Bruff on May 1st 2019. Thomas Fitzgerald was JFK's great grandfather on his mother's side. He was born in Bruff, County Limerick in 1823. He was a farmer and lived in a rural part of the Parish. Although the Fitzgerald farm was affected by the Great famine, Thomas managed to keep the farm going until 1854, when he left Ireland and carried with him a family bible. He settled in Boston, Massachusetts and in 1857 married Rosanna Cox who had arrived in Boston from County Cavan, Ireland.
