Moneygall

Anyone know where that is?

Wikipedia tells us:

Moneygall (Irish: Muine Gall, meaning Grove of the foreigners) is a small town in County Offaly, Ireland, on the N7 route between Dublin and Limerick, on the County Tipperary/Offaly border. While the village is located in County Offaly the Gaelic Athletic Association playing field is located in County Tipperary. At the 2006 census, the town had a population of 298. Moneygall has a Roman Catholic church, five shops, a post office, a national school, a Garda Síochána station and two pubs.[1]

Now if you want a little break from the frenzy of shopping or are scratching you brain to think of the perfect gift for old uncle Pat or great aunt Maud, why not sit down and take a look at this little beauty, a YouTube video released yesterday by Universal Music

I guarantee that Moneygall and Barack Obama will remain on your mind and in your head for the whole of the day. Rumour has it that a certain local clergy person has a walk on part about 3/4 ways through the clip. To date I have not met him, so I am not sure if we see the man of the cloth himself or a cartoon version of him.


To buy the single go to iTunes and search for ‘Corrigan Brothers’ or your nearest record store – Buy one for all your friends and help Moneygall to Number 1 for Christmas!
