As a child, Taoiseach Enda Kenny used to memorise the speeches of President John F Kennedy. He listened to them on records, as it was the practice to record them at the time, and can still recite passages.

Due to the blizzard weather conditions in Boston, the Taoiseach had to cancel an address to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the assassinated US President and Irish-American icon.

Maybe that was for the best. Unfortunately, the oratory skills of JFK have not extended to his acolyte.
