Assassinated American President John F Kennedy's boxer shorts are on display in a Dublin menswear shop window.

The white cotton boxers - which the late leader wore while in the US navy during the SECOND WORLD WAR - were purchased by Irishman PAUL ALLEN for more than $4,800 (GBP3,000) at an auction last week (ends27JUL03).

And now the briefs are making a limited appearance in the city's LOUIS COPELAND + SONS store window before being shipped for display at the JOHN F KENNEDY LIBRARY AND MUSEUM in Boston, America on Friday (1AUG03).
