Obama, son of Jock Tamson


I love this story about Alex Salmond claiming Obama for one of our own. Apparently he has some Scottish ancestry, as did a previous 12 US presidents. So ... he's invited Obama to "come back" to Scotland during Homecoming Scotland 2009, the fantastic campaign to get Scots visiting Scotland next year. If it works, that is ONE visit I am NOT going to miss!

The Offaly Irish beg to differ though -

Thanks Joe, much appreciated. And I am so excited that Obama comes from Offaly because so do I!!! Well, one side of the family comes from Offaly and the other from Donegal - me and Barack Obama? We're close!
