(JFK LIBRARY/CNN) – A collection of letters written by Jackie Kennedy that were supposed to be headed for auction is now being returned to their owners.

An Irish auction house made the announcement this week.

The former first lady, who died in 1994, wrote the letters to an Irish priest.

The letters reveal intimate details about her early relationship with the dashing young politician she would later marry.

The letters were put up for auction by All Hallows College in Dublin, Ireland.

The college didn't say why the letters won't be auctioned, but said they're working with the Kennedy family to decide what to do with them.
