Irish roots and the American presidency
John F. Kennedy, famous son of Boston, stands alone when most people think of an Irish-American serving as an American president. However, there have been many commanders in chief with Irish roots, including our newest and most recent president, inaugurated yesterday. For a list of those with Irish blood (in some quantity, at least) visit Irish Presidents on the American Presidents blog. It includes a list of all presidents with Irish heritage and a link to an article detailing former President George Bush's roots.
