Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You realize today's St. Patrick's Day?

The Kennedys I believe came over during the Potato Famine 1848-1849.

In the Caribbean, there were a lot of mixed marriages, and a large number of black Irish.  Blacks who spoke Gaelic.

Actually not all "Kennedys" in America are Irish. Many, like those I'm related to, were Scots or Scots-Irish and came over in the 1600s to 1700s, long before the Irish during the potato famine.
