THIS TUESDAY GOODWIN SMITH AMBASSADORS ARE TO PRESENT A PAIR OF #BUCKINGGOODSHOES TO THE MOST POWERFUL MAN ON THE PLANET - PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II. 

 

ON MONDAY MORNING AT 8:50AM, SHARP, COUSINS HENRY HEALY AND BILLY HAYES WILL FLY FROM DUBLIN AIRPORT TO WASHINGTON, D.C. TO MAKE ONE HELL OF A DELIVERY.

THEIR INVITATIONS TO THE WHITE HOUSE COME AS A RESULT OF HENRY'S RELATION TO THE 44TH US PRESIDENT - HE’S HIS EIGHTH COUSIN, NOT NINTH, EIGHTH! 

 

IN 2011, WHILE BARACK OBAMA WAS ON A STATE VISIT TO IRELAND, THE PRESIDENT VISITED THE SMALL VILLAGE OF MONEYGALL - THE BIRTHPLACE OF HIS GREAT-GREAT-GREAT-GRANDFATHER. ENTER 31-YEAR-OLD MONEYGALL RESIDENT HENRY HEALEY WHO SOON DISCOVERED HIS CONNECTION TO THE COMMANDER AND CHIEF. 

 

NOW, YEARS LATER, "HENRY THE EIGHTH" AND THE PRESIDENT HAVE BECOME GOOD FRIENDS, MEETING YEARLY OVER A PINT OF… GUINNESS OF COURSE!

THE BOYS WILL BE ATTENDING THE ANNUAL ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATIONS AT THE WHITE HOUSE ON TUESDAY AND WILL BE GIFTING A PAIR OF GOODWIN SMITH SHOES ON BEHALF OF US! FOR THE TWO AVID GS CLUB MEMBERS, THE CHOICE WAS OBVIOUS...  

 

IN FACT, JUST A FEW HOURS AGO THE BOYS COLLECTED BARACK’S HEALEY NAVY DERBY SHOES FROM GSHQ READY FOR THEIR FLIGHT.


BARACK, WE WERE TOLD, TAKES A SIZE 12 (US OF COURSE).


ALL IN A DAY'S WORK. PS. HAPPY ST. PADDY’S DAY!
