Finally, Barack Obama and I have found a common ground - an emerald green, common ground called Ireland.
I consider myself to have a very strong Irish connection with roots reaching Ireland from both sides of my family. My father's mother - my grandmother - was born just outside of Belfast. Some members of my family have made the trip back to the old sod and visited the home where Grandma O. was born.
Since Mr. Obama's visit to Ireland has morphed into an episode of the NBC TV show 'Who Do You Think You Are?' I do feel closer to the President.
Yesterday the President and First Lady traveled to the town of Moneygall to visit the home of his Irish roots. Before Donald Trump asks the question, 'How Irish is Barack Obama?' the BBC has provided us with a graphic.
Failte, Mr. President! I'll see you on March 17th.
