Mitchell's work with the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 brought new stability between Ireland, the UK and Northern Ireland's political parties. Mitchell will be honored this week by La Roche College for his dedication to peace and justice.

Mr. Rooney is back running the Steelers after spending the past four years serving as the United States Ambassador to Ireland. He sat down and talked with us about how his experiences as a team owner informed his approach to diplomacy, and why it’s important to bring together differing groups. We also spoke with the students from Ireland and Pittsburgh about how they were inspired by their day-long interaction with a different culture.
