President Kennedy in Ireland: RTÉ’s role in this historic visit - An RTÉ Archives discussion

Tuesday 9 July at 6 pm

Ryan Tubridy, broadcaster and author of JFK in Ireland : Four Days that changed a President will moderate a discussion on RTÉ’s role in this historic visit. The panel will include  John O’Reagan, Executive Producer at RTÉ,  Liam Wylie, Curator of RTÉ’s JFK exhibition, and Godfrey Graham,renowned RTÉ cameraman, integral to covering JFK’s 1963 visit to his ancestral homeland.

The evening will reflect on the four days that propelled Ireland into the international media spotlight; why JFK’s visit was a milestone in Irish history; the palpable charisma of the man as retold by a key cameraman of the time; how RTÉ managed this huge media undertaking including new insights from BBC documents just recently acquired.  The talk will be illustrated by film and audio from RTÉ’s Archives who have launched an online exhibition on JFK’s visit to these shores.
