President Clinton congratulated Michael Darragh and the Dublin team’s success and even made reference to him during his keynote address where he told the audience that he won “his sport’s equivalent of the Superbowl, and they won.”
Clinton said that Michael Darragh’s commitment to his national sport is a true example of being “tribal” before adding: “We are all tribal. We all have specific things about our identity that we should be proud of.”
Speaking after the event, the Ballyboden clubman said he never thought when he woke up that morning that by the afternoon he would be shaking hands with one of the world’s most famous leaders.
He said: “It was great to be among the attendees of the conference and I never expected to meet President Clinton so it’s been an amazing week.”
President Michael D. Higgins and UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed also made keynote speeches at Concern Worldwide’s 50th Anniversary Conference, ‘Resurgence of Humanity: Breaking the Cycle of Conflict, Hunger and Human Suffering’ on Friday.
