WITH the former White House Press Secretary appearing on The Late Late Show tonight,  could it be possible that Sean Spicer has some very distant relatives in Tralee?

Tralee resident Pat Norris was on Radio Kerry this morning talking about her great grandfather George Spicer of Dominick Street.

George Spicer was an Englishman, born in Hertfordshire, who helped Captain Robert Monteith when he came to Tralee after the failed landing of arms from the Aud just prior to the 1916 Rising.

Pat is wondering if her great grandfather could have any connection to the William Spicer, great grandfather of Sean, who emigrated from Kinsale and joined the US Navy,  but it’s not known if he was from Cork. With a surname that wouldn’t be very common, it’s a possibility the two men were related.

Pat’s own father, Joe Spicer, was a Commandant in the Irish Army who was stationed in Ballymullen Barracks.

Radio Kerry has contacted RTE prior to Sean Spicer’s appearance tonight to pass on the information, so maybe the controversial former press secretary will give Pat a ring about it.
