New Irish anthem of hope to be presented to President Barack Obama

http://www.irishcentral.com/news/New-Irish-anthem-of-hope-to-be-presented-to-President-Barack-Obama-185860312.html

President Barack Obama will be presented with a new Irish anthem for hope on the day of his White House inauguration later this month.

Musician Brendan Keeley is travelling across Ireland gathering support for his new anthem ‘We Will Be Strong.'

He plans to record the song in Offaly before President Obama’s famous cousin Henry Healy brings it to the inauguration ceremony on January 19th.

The best selling singer-songwriter has told the Irish Times that he is ‘on a mission’ to raise Irish spirits with an uplifting anthem.
