Kenny Gave Obama A Book!

There is so much excitement today for Michelle and Barack Obama's visit to Ireland. Wonderful that our Taoiseach Enda Kenny gave them a first edition of 'Legends of Hawaii' that was written by an Irishman, Padraic Colum. Enda's commented that it was not for Obama but for his daughters Malia and Sasha. I loved Obama's reaction, "If you need someone to do some good writing...hire an Irishman!'

'Let me through security or I'll eat you up! '

Due to high winds, torrential rain, and tight security, Ravenous Beast might not make it through the barriers and I'll have to post Tales from Old Ireland to Malia and Sasha at the White House!

There has been such excitement here today. Here's a clip of US President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama having a pint of the black stuff down in Ollie Hayes pub in Moneygall, Co. Offaly. They are such an awesome couple, kissing babies and shaking hands all over Ireland! They look like they are having a great day and the street party is yet to begin!

Sláinte Obama!
