Barack Obama and His Irish Homeland

Here are a few more images from the Universal Records international release party for "No One's As Irish As Barack Obama" by the Corrigan Brothers.

The first two are of some of the paraphernalia littering the walls of Ollie Hayes' pub along the Main Street in Moneygall, Co. Offaly.

The next is of the promotional cd of the single given out free today and one of many stickers sent anonymously from Washington, DC with an Irish declaration on it. It (loosely) translates: "Yeah Obama! You're very welcome to Moneygall, Mr. President!"

And the last is a fantastic little video that Universal Records commissioned for the new song. It's quite humorous and features my friend and rector (see previous post) Stephen Neill in cartoon. Apparently it's true that President- Elect Obama himself has said he would like to visit Moneygall and have a pint here - yeah! Enjoy.

Here's the previous music video complete with clips of Obama himself - dancing.

Buy the song at iTunes!
