Ms Kennedy took part in a number of ceremonies celebrating her ancestral links with the town.
JFK’s great-grandfather, and Caroline’s great-great-grandfather, Thomas Fitzgerald left Bruff for Boston in 1852.
His son John Fitzgerald, known as “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald, went on to become Mayor of Boston and served a number of terms.
His daughter Rose was JFK’s mother and Caroline’s grandmother.
Ms Kennedy visited the town along with her husband Edwin Schlossberg and their three children – Rose, Tatiana and Jack.
