US President Joe Biden Praised for Mentioning All Blacks in Irish Parliament Speech After Gaffe


US President Joe Biden received applause from the Irish lawmakers after mentioning the All Blacks in his speech during a joint session at the Irish parliament.

This was a marked contrast to a previous gaffe he made by referring to the team as the “Black and Tans” during a speech at a pub in Northern Ireland.

The president had been given a tie by his rugby-playing cousin Rob Kearney, who helped Ireland beat the All Blacks in Chicago in 2016.

Biden, who is known for his Irish heritage, also spoke about a rugby ball signed by the Irish rugby team in the Oval Office.
