Two Further Historic Gems Kindly Presented to Millstreet Museum

This magnificent Tapestry of President John F. Kennedy with the Statue of Liberty and the American Flag was first purchased in Germany in 1965. It has been kindly donated to Millstreet Museum by the Randles Family of Minor Row in memory of the late Paul Fitzgerald who bravely served in the American Air Force. Click on the images to enlarge.

This wonderful framed portrait of Pope Pius XI was presented by Jerry who dedicatedly restored the historic image. This Pope was in Rome during the Eucharistic Congress of 1932 which was held in Dublin. As Popes did not leave the Vatican to travel abroad at that time he sent his Papal Legate – Cardinal Lorenzo Lauri. Many children born that year in Ireland had Lauri as part of their Christian Name.
