Ich bin ein Berliner

President Barack Obama and his family have left Ireland for Germany where one of his famous predecessors, John F Kennedy made his memorable Ich Bin ein Berliner speech.

While the President was restricted to the North for the duration of his stay his wife, the US First Lady, Michelle Obama and the couples's two children spent much of the time in the Republic.

When JFK made his visit to Ireland 50 years ago this month much of the event was covered by Lensmen and the insuperable photographer Andy Farren, some of whose images from the time featured in a special 50th anniversary supplement put together for the Irish Independent.

Irish Photo Archive has a wide range of images of the JFK visit available for purchase and framing if desired.
