There's no-one as Irish as Barack Obama you know

Who knew? Sometime early last year I took a call from a local man who told me he had written a song about Barack Obama's Irish heritage. Sure, I thought... Who would have thought that the Corrigan Brothers, hailing from Castletroy, would go on to become an internet phenomenon, and appear in various forms of high-profile media on both sides of the Atlantic. Not me.
Their latest appearance was on the Andrew Marr show, the BBC's flagship political programme, performing their song 'There's No-one as Irish as Barack Obama', watched by Neil Kinnock and William Haigue, among others. Next stop is the inauguration party on January 20th in Washington. After that, who knows?
