Joe Biden congratulates Irish union rugby team on spectacular win

The Irish rugby union team seems to have well-wishers in rather high places.

US President Joe Biden congratulated the Irish Union team on its spectacular 29-20 win over the All Blacks on Saturday, at the Aviva Stadium’s first full crowd in 21 months.

The Irish team tweeted that it was amazing for them to have the POTUS address the team after the match and also posted a picture of the team having a video call with Joe Biden. Ireland’s win was quite a spectacle, given the team had been beaten by the All Blacks in their last match against them two years ago, though Saturday’s victory did mark a third win for the Irish team in its last five meetings with New Zealand.
Biden has many a times paid tribute to his family’s Irish blood, as Vice President, he hosted St. Patricks’ Day celebrations at the White House, and in 2021 hosted Taoiseach Micheál Martin in a virtual bilateral meeting.
THe White house stated “Yesterday, the President and members of his family called the Irish Rugby Football Union to congratulate the team for their victory over the New Zealand All Blacks,”
“The President had written to Team Ireland on Friday to wish them luck ahead of the Test match in Dublin,” , according to the White House.
