Dublin - President Elect O'Bama is truly the Great-Grandson of famous Cork carpenter Seamus O'Bama, claims 'Top O the Morning' Landlord, Partraig Finnerley.
Partraig is very proud to display an antique hand made bar rack, crafted by Seamus with protruding ear shaped slots for racking glasses. He points to a damaged corner of the rack, where he says O'Bama signed his work. (Others speculate that the indistinct script actually says 'Oh Bugger!'- it is common folklore that Seamus frequently hit his thumb when chiseling his finer details).
Proudly standing in front of a life size poster of President Elect O'Bama with 1st Lady Elect Michelle O'Bumma on the west wall of the Lounge Bar, Partraig said he would send them both a crate of Guinness for their Big Day.
The popular Dublin Guinnessing hole is sending a delegation to the inauguration on 20th January. They will stay on to carry out research in Guinness exports by taking part in an extensive pub crawl of US Irish bars, culminating in the St Patrick's Day Parade in O'Bama's home city of Chicago.
