Pictured in possibly every paper today is none other than US president Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama enjoying a Guinness in Hayes Bar in Moneygall, Co. Offaly, during their visit to the president’s family roots.
After enjoying a glass of Guinness, Michelle asked to have a go at pulling a pint herself. She pulled two perfectly, one for US Ambassador Dan Rooney and another for parish priest Fr Joe Kennedy. Can the Americans pull a good pint? The answer from Barack Obama is ‘Is féidir linn’.
To be reassured that the president of America pays his way, he put €50 on the counter and said ‘I just want you to know that the president always pays his bar tab’.
Slainte to one and all.
