JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY MEMORIAL

Rated 0 out of 5

In 1963, just five months before his assassination, US President John F. Kennedy visited Ireland and stopped briefly in Galway on the 29th of June before leaving the country.

In 1965, the park in Eyre Square was renamed the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park. Soon after, a monument with a central bronze profile cast from a wood carving by local sculptor Albert O’Toole was erected but was subsequently replaced in the early 2000’s by the new monument as the other had fallen.
