The Irish Famine of the 1840s was a bleak and devastating period for Ireland. It led to a large exodus of people who sought a better life in America. The large scale of people meant that inevitably Irish men and women went on to become some of the most influential people in America.

Not only has America been shaped by Irish heritage and history but also the rest of the United Kingdom in so many fields from literature (Oscar Wilde) to science (John Tyndall) the list is impressive.


John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK)
the 35th President of the United States, 1961 to 1963 when he was assasinated.

JThe Fitzgerald family was from the County of Limerick from a village called Bruff. During the potato famine some of the Fitzgerald migrated to America along with so many others to escape the devastating potato famine.

Thomas Fitzgerald, born in Bruff in 1823, and Rose Anna Cox, born in County Cavan in 1835, were the parents of John Francis Fitzgerald, who was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 11, 1863

In November 1887, Patrick Joseph "P. J." Kennedy married Mary Augusta Hickey, daughter of James Hickey of Cork, Ireland, and Margaret M. Field, also of Ireland. Their son, Joseph Patrick Kennedy, was born on September 6, 1888 in East Boston. He was John F. Kennedy's father.

Joseph Lyons

Prime Minister of Australia 1932-1939

Joseph Aloysius Lyons was born at Stanley in north-western Tasmania on 15 September 1879. He was one of the eight children of Irish immigrants Ellen and Michael Lyons.

He became Premier of Tasmania on 25 October 1923.
