Courtney Kennedy Hill Husband
She met ABC sports producer Jeffrey Robert Ruhe, son of Robert Ruhe and Elva Buckingham, through her job at the Children’s Television Workshop. The couple married on June 14, 1980, in Washington, D.C. and were divorced in 1990.
She married Paul Michael Hill on June 26, 1993, on a boat in the Aegean Sea. Kennedy and Hill were reportedly introduced by her mother. The couple had one daughter, Saoirse Roisin Kennedy Hill. The couple lived in Ireland from 2002 to 2006. In February 2006, they legally separated.
Hill is an Irishman who was wrongly imprisoned for 15 years after being convicted of several bombings carried out by the IRA. However, he was later found to have been convicted unjustly; no evidence linked him to either the bombings or to involvement with the IRA. Further investigation revealed that the confessions of himself and three others (collectively called “The Guildford Four”) were coerced after many days in detention without charge, and the purported notes from the interrogations were fabricated by the police some time later, so that the notes would reflect the case the police had decided to build. The film In the Name of the Father (1993) was based on this case.
