US President Joe Biden and Rob Kearney parents, David Joseph Donald Kearney are fifth cousins as both are connected via their Finnegan and Kearney ancestors on the Cooley Peninsula in Co. Louth.
The Blewitts from Co. Mayo and the Finnegans and Kearneys from Co. Louth are Joe Biden’s two primary Irish ancestors. Owen Finnegan, who married Jean Boyle in 1839 and was from the Cooley Peninsula in County Louth, was his great-great-grandfather.
Rob Kearney, a former Ireland rugby player, was excited to meet US Vice President Joe Biden on St. Patrick’s Day.
There is a kinship between Irish rugby and the White House since Biden is fifth cousins with David Kearney, the father of the Kearney brothers Rob and Dave.
On St. Patrick’s Day, the Irish icon was allowed to visit the White House and even took a photo with the 46th US President.
Kearney was even donning a unique cap that Biden had specially given him. Even the Ireland squad, who will take on England in the Grand Slam final, received some advice from the current US President.
