On the 4th of November 2008, Henry Healy - an office clerk from Moneygall - was elected 8th cousin of the President of the United States. The honeymoon period would be short for there was much to do. The Road to Moneygall is a fascinating and disarming chronicle of three years in the life of the inhabitants of Moneygall village, county Offaly - which come to wholly unexpected fame in 2008 as the birthplace of Fulmouth Kearney - five-times great grandfather of the leader of the free world: US President, Barack Obama. Filmed, with great empathy and full-access over the course of three years, this is the story of how the most famous man of the 21st century came to the village that time forgot.
