Tubridy rushes to meet JFK book deadline - Around Town, Entertainment -

RTE star Ryan Tubridy will launch his debut book on John F Kennedy to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the president's election.

Titled JFK In Ireland, the book is set to hit shelves on November 5.

The Late Late Show host is in the final stages of "the mopping-up process" for his eagerly awaited first book and has just four weeks left until his deadline to hand it over to publisher Harper Collins UK.

The father-of-two, who has been writing the book for the past 18 months and committed to the project long before he took over the Late Late Show gig last September, has spent much of his time researching it in the National Library.

The self-confessed young fogey described the book as "a close study of the shenanigans behind the scenes" at the time of the 1963 visit. "This book aims to present the public side of that whirlwind Kennedy visit in 1963 from those who may have stories, gifts, photos, video, memories or simply an opinion on it."
