Irish Monumentís Kennedy-Linked Flame Goes Out

06.28.13 11:22 AM

NEW ROSS, Ireland (UPI) — An Irish memorial with a flame carried from U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s grave in Arlington, Va., went out due to a soot buildup, officials said.

Eamonn Hore of the of Wexford County Council said the Emigrant Flame in New Ross went out Wednesday night, just four days after it was lit using flames carried from Kennedy’s eternal flame at Arlington National Cemetery by the late leader’s sister Jean Kennedy Smith, daughter Caroline Kennedy and Irish Premier Enda Kenny, NBC News reported Friday.

Hore said the council had miner’s lamps lit from the Arlington flame so the memorial can be restarted.

“It is a fact that with a flame like that as part of the maintenance anyway it will be switched off,” he said.

Hore said the flame went out due to a buildup of soot.

The memorial was lit to observe the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s visit to Ireland.
