We’re very proud to be returning to the Tip O’Neill Award as sponsors.
The award has been established to commemorate the life and achievements of US Speaker Tip O’Neill and celebrate the achievements of members of the diaspora who exceed expectations in the their chosen field. Much like Tip O’Neill did.
O’Neill fought for the Irish diaspora in the United States, by encouraging migration to the country, where Irish people could enjoy the same opportunities that he had experienced – to be the best that you can be. He served as Speaker of the US House of Representatives for ten years.
This year’s recipient is Brian Schweitzer, who served as Governor of Montana in the USA from 2005 – 2013. He is being recognised for his work in this role. As Governor, Me Schweitzer holds one of the highest approval ratings in US politics.
This Award proves that Wild Geese are still making an impact in all corners of the world and we’re very happy to be a part of this gathering. The Governor will be presented with a bottle of The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey.
