Irish President, Michael Higgins Visits Seattle
Please find below some comments from Terry Lynch, who has helped coordinate a huge effort in the area this past 14 months - successfully getting Gaelic Games in several schools through their Physical Education program.
The visit was everything I hoped it would be and more. The weather was perfect, the press arrived on time and were orderly and curious, the local club's players and management were presentable and well spoken, and best of all the students played with passion and their enjoyment of the game was visible for all to see.
As announced, there was heavy media coverage. I gave interviews for about six local outlets as well as the Irish Times and RTE. RTE's video should be excellent because we set it up for the background to be the football game in progress. During the RTE interview I was able to focus on NACB and GAA Games Development efforts in the US, so there should be a very good message.
