END OF THE LINE
The last of the Kennedy clan siblings who tried to change the world, Jean Kennedy Smith, has died aged 92. The second youngest of Joseph and Rose Kennedy’s nine children, Jean’s siblings included 3 of the most famous American politicians of the 20th Century and the founder of the Special Olympics. However, her own claim to fame came in her 60s when Bill Clinton announced her as the US Ambassador to Ireland. By pushing for an America visa for Gerry Adams, Smith got Sinn Fein in from the cold on the peace talks. She was picked by 3 teams, including Poor Ghoul and The Sick-bed of Cuchulainn, the latter of whom are on a bit of roll of late.
