From the people behind the annual Kennedy Summer School:
From Whence I Came is a brand new collection of 15 specially-commissioned essays looking at the legacy of John F Kennedy and the politics of Ireland and the United States – co-edited by Dr Brian Murphy, a lecturer at the Technological University Dublin, and Dr Donnacha Ó Beacháin, Associate Professor of Politics at Dunblin City University.
Contributors include Cody Kennan, former Obama speechwriter, Kerry Kennedy, President of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organisation and Tad Devine, former senior adviser to Bernie Sanders.
Published by The Merrion Press, all royalties will go to the Community Hospital in New Ross, as the book is published in memory of the late barrister and political advisor Noel Whelan, who hailed from New Ross and co-founded and ran the Kennedy Summer School there. Noel died in July 2019 aged 50.
