Obama Reel

Moneygall village adopts traditional Irish song the 'Obama Reel' to celebrate President Obama's Irish roots.

Barack Obama is not the first US President to find he has Irish roots tracing back generations, nor is he likely to be the last.

The track record of US Presidents to take up the post includes an impressive list of Irish descendants.

Barack Obama signifies a significant marker, being the 22nd of the 44 US presidents to identify a direct family link to the Emerald Isle.

This unique link from the Whitehouse to the small island on the most westerly island of Europe is celebrated in a unique traditional Irish tune put together by a talented group of Irish musicians, Tippoff.
