The Moneygall Obama Committee was formed in March 2011 to represent the village of Moneygall, in preparation for the visit of US President and First Lady to Moneygall in May 2011.
The sole focus of the group at that time was to represent the needs of the village, its residents and businesses through liaison with all stakeholders in the event. In the summer months following, the visitor numbers to Moneygall increased significantly. The Moneygall Obama Committee organised a July 4th festival in the village which was very successful and gained significant media coverage and was supported throughout by the people of Moneygall. In addition, media interest remained in Moneygall (RTE, BBC etc) throughout 2011.
Having been involved in the organisation of the visit of President Obama to Moneygall, the successful management of a July 4th Festival just 6 weeks later and seeing the visitors to Moneygall increasing and the local support for this, the Moneygall Obama Committee agreed that it was necessary to formalise their structure and Moneygall Development Association Ltd. was formed in July 2011.
