U2 Drummer Donates To Native American COVID Relief

Native American leaders have thanked U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr. for donating $100,000 to coronavirus relief efforts. Mullen Jr’s contribution was part of more than $870,000 raised by Irish donors to the Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 relief fund. Why are so many Irish donating to Native American charities? It’s a payback that goes all the way back to 1847, when the Choctaw Nation donated to Ireland during the Great Famine.
