Obama retracing his Irish roots
The small village of Moneygall, in Ireland, is awaiting the visit of President Barack Obama later this month.
The President is paying a visit to the ancestral home of his great great great grandfather before he emigrated to the USA.
A 'welcome home' in the rural village is organised where distant relatives, such as his eighth cousin Henry Healy, can still be found.
