Ancestry job for Obama's cousin
BARACK Obama's Irish cousin Henry Healy has found a job helping others trace their ancestors.
Last month the 27-year-old Moneygall native lost his job as a bookkeeper at a local plumbing firm, which fell victim to the economic downturn.
Mr Healy, who welcomed the US President and First Lady Michelle Obama to Moneygall, Co Offaly, said keeping active helped him cope with unemployment.
He joined Ireland Reaching Out (Ireland XO), the national reverse genealogy project.
Ireland XO was successfully piloted in east Galway and is being rolled out nationwide.
