During his visit Kennedy met with the papal nuncio, Dr Paschal Robinson, and then he had lunch with President Hyde. Later, he visited Trinity College to see the Book of Kells and was given a tour of the National Museum by the director, Adolf Mahr. Then he met the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alfie Byrne, and the leader of the opposition WT Cosgrave, returning to the Áras for another chat with Douglas Hyde. According to Kennedy himself, the visit wasn’t merely a sentimental one. The climax of the visit was a dinner in Dublin Castle, hosted by the Taoiseach. Eamon De Valera who used the occasion to thank America for the “sympathy her people had shown to many” including himself, during the period 1916-21."
