There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

The Irish musical group the Corrigan Brothers rocketed to fame a couple of years ago with a lively and catchy song about Barack Obama's roots in Moneygall. They now have several versions on YouTube:

 1. Corrigan Brothers original hit now has over a million hits on YouTube. 

 2. For Obama's visit to Moneygall they have created an updated version that weaves in some genealogical tidbits about the President and those who have researched his Irish great-great-great-grandfather.

 3. A new longer version with an attempt at political satire is not yet as polished but may also be of interest.

President Obama has certainly be good for the careers of the Corrigan Brothers. It remains to be seen if Irish ancestry will be good for Obama's career in 2012.
