    Denis Meehan and John Bowman report for radio on the tea party at President Kennedy’s ancestral farm in Dunganstown, Co. Wexford.

    Meehan talks to Malcolm Kilduff, Assistant Press Secretary to the White House, about how the visit is going and what their future plans are. Kilduff says the president "is absolutely indefatigable".

    Bowman describes the busy scene at the tea party and talks to local man James Molloy, who almost shook hands with the president.
