Barack Obama to visit Ireland

Recommended Posts

The President will certainly be made very welcome in Moneygall, Co Offally, where his great, great, great grandfather on his mother's side, Fulmuth Kearney, was brought up.

Fulmuth, a shoe-maker, left for New York in 1850 at the age of 18. The President still has relations in Moneygall. His 8th cousin was at his inauguration ceremony. :blink:

So it is O'Bama after all.

Mammy's side.

Well the Queen has set the Guinness pouring challenge bar high.

They're loving his speech including reference to his cousin Henry (Henry the eighth as he is now known) and the Great Hunger that led to the diaspora.

I'm enjoying it myself - both humour and pathos.
