Ireland to Welcome Biden, the Most Irish President Since JFK

From a New York Times story by Ed O’Loughlin headlined “Ireland Readies a Warm Welcome for Biden, ‘the Most Irish’ President Since J.F.K.”:

When John F. Kennedy became the first serving U.S. president to visit Ireland, in 1963, he was hailed as a returning hero in New Ross, County Wexford, his family’s ancestral home.

Richard M. Nixon was met in 1970 with a few thrown eggs, but by otherwise friendly crowds, and toured the graves of his Quaker forebears in Kildare.
