Obama returns to Irish roots

Cold Guinness and warm welcome for US president on visit to ancestor's home.

    Barack Obama, the US president, and his wife Michelle, experienced a warm welcome in Ireland - where some of Obama's distant ancestors lived.

    As well as meeting the Irish prime minister, Obama made a visit to the small town of Moneygall where the president's great, great grandfather lived.
