MY GRANDMOTHER was over the moon on 29 May 1963 when WGAL TV8 reported the visit of President John F. Kennedy to Ireland. She tuned the family television (hers was the first television in our Lancaster County family lineage) to watch the news reports of JFK's arrival in Ireland. Nana was born in the States but reared by her aunt from County Clare so her values were Old Irish. In today's Irish Times, two pages of the 1963 edition have been reprinted in their entirety, including the small advertisement for "Mannequin: Nylons of Aer Lingus."
