A mystery revolving around President Barack Obama’s Irish roots was solved when a tomb containing the remains of Obama’s Irish ancestor was discovered in the Irish medieval city of Kilkenny.

After a painstaking search, film maker Gabriel Murray, who is in the process of making a documentary on Obama's Irish roots, finally found “Obama’s Lost Tomb” inside the 13th century St. Canice’s Cathedral.

Ha ... maybe there’s a closer Kennedy link than everybody thought. Sure seems like a long commute to Kenya, though.

Did it contain a “Shroud of Elgin” (or some other “Turin”-sounding Chicago reference)

Probably because the Kennedys weren’t really Irish, either.

Aha! So he's been trying to pull a fast one on us & he's really Black Irish, is he? ;-)

Hmmmm. Funny how this news is coming out just at the moment he's trying to switch PR strategies & adopt the maudlin mantle of the "last living Kennedy brother".

Well, this is fantastic news for the African-American community, at least - they won't have to pretend they support this arrogant, incompetent idiot nor endure his bogus prep school brutha schtick anymore.

LOL They can find a long lost relative; but they can’t find his birth certificate to prove that this is his long lost relative.

Makes perfect sense in the world of Obama. sarc/

This must be a joke. Genealogy is my hobby and you just don’t find your way back to the 13th century. It can be done, but the probability is slight. Dependable records are hard to come by.

Technically the Kennedys aren’t “Irish”.

They were part of “The Planters” scheme.

Origins;

The Kennedys had their home territory in Carrick in Ayrshire, in southwestern Scotland. Originally they were of Pictish/Norse stock from the Western Isles. In the fifteenth century, one Ulric Kennedy fled Ayrshire to Lochaber in the Highlands for refuge, where he was granted protection under the Chief of Clan Cameron. From this Highland branch, Kennedys settled on the Isle of Skye. A branch also was established in northeast Scotland, at Aberdeen. The clan was one branch of the Celtic Lords of Galloway.

To add to the confusion, there are the Kennedys of nine-county Ulster in the north of Ireland. The Kennedys who settled in Ulster are mostly of Scottish origin from the territories of Galloway and Ayr just across the Irish Sea 20 miles away. Many Scottish Kennedys were planters in Ulster, and many Scots went south to Dublin and mingled with the Irish clan. Because of this confusion, the Scottish Chief of Kennedy is willing to recognize all Kennedys as part of the clan/family.”

[”The Planters”, if you’re not familiar with the term, were those people whom the English sent to Northern Ireland to “conquer” the Irish by simply displacing them, whether by force or intermarrying. It is said, sarcastically, of the Planters that “They became more Irish than the Irish”]

The Kennedys are not truly “Irish” any more than a bunch of Kenyans would be if they moved there and settled in for a few centuries.

The “Black Irish” are the original Celtic stock that inhabited the island long before various invaders came along and intermingled with them.

Before the Viking invasions, red heads were virtually unknown and redheads were considered “unlucky” because it meant that the child’s ancestors had been impregnated by the invading Nords.

It must be really hard when you don’t even own an original modern birth certificate.

Yeah, I was just being snarky - although the term is rather more loosely used today than the definition you give. Still, now it would seem it's much more loosely used than anyone would have ever imagined before Nov 2008.

You mentioned redheads: even in the middle east, every once in a while you'll see a redhead and the explanation you hear over there is that they're descendants of the Crusaders.
