The daughter of former US Democratic Presidential Candidate Senator Robert Kennedy has said the Democratic Party is still not in a healthy state but is in a better position than it was in 2016.

Speaking at the Kennedy Summer School in Co Wexford, Kerry Kennedy said that she hoped her nephew Joe would follow in her father and uncle's footsteps and run for the White House.

Ms Kennedy also said her father would be dismayed at the current situation in the United States if he was alive today.
