Coming down the stairs in Cork of an evening - my mother told me that JFK had been shot.

He had visited a few months earlier. The thing I still remember most about it is the discussion about the Secret Service men running alongside the motorcade (Clint-Eastwood-Like if anyone has seen the film with CE and Renee Russo) and delivering 'rabbit punches' to anyone that approached the car in which JFK was travelling! There was, I think, a certain degree of annoyance about the ill-treatment delivered by American security men to the good people of Ireland who merely wished to wish the young president well. After all he was an Irishman?
