Mourners of all congregations attend services and masses for the dead President.

Tuesday 26 November 1963 was a national day of mourning in Ireland for President Kennedy. Many businesses shut down so that staff could attend the special services and masses held throughout the country that morning. This mute RTÉ News report shows several of these taking place in Dublin.

Mourners at the mass in the Pro-Cathedral include the Taoiseach Seán Lemass and Sinéad de Valera, wife of the Irish president Éamon de Valera. At St Patrick’s Cathedral, The Archbishop of Dublin, George Simms greets Colonel Mew, who is there to represent President de Valera. The Dublin Hebrew congregation enter the synagogue in Adelaide Road for a memorial address. Finally, troops are shown parading to the Military Church at Arbour Hill.
