Who is Courtney Kennedy Hill?

Mary Courtney Kennedy Hill was born on September 9, 1956, in Boston, Massachusetts. She is the fifth of the eleven children of Robert Francis Kennedy and Ethel Skakel.

It was through her work at the Children's Television Workshop that she met ABC sports producer Jeffrey Robert Ruhe, son of Robert Ruhe and Elva Buckingham. The couple married on June 14, 1980, in Washington, D.C. and were divorced in 1990.

She then married Paul Michael Hill on June 26, 1993, on a boat in the Aegean Sea. Hill is an Irishman who was imprisoned for 15 years after being convicted of several bombings on behalf of 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 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.
