ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Michelle Obama and her daughters Malia and Sasha attended the Gaiety Theater in Dublin on Monday for a special performance of Riverdance. They were accompanied by Sabina Higgins - wife of the Irish President Michael Higgins, Fionnuala Kenny - wife of Taoiseach Enda Kenny, and a group of Irish teenagers, including some from Moneygall, where Mr Obama's ancestors lived. She revealed she and her daughters had never seen Riverdance live. "And now we couldn't be more thrilled to see a live performance of Riverdance. We have never seen Riverdance live. This is our first time. How many people here, it's their first time seeing it live? So very cool, right? Very cool." On Tuesday the three Obama women will travel to Glendalough in Country Wicklow before departing for Berlin to accompany U.S. President Barack Obama.
