Congratulations to singer, songwriter, actor, presenter & active campaigner Keith Duffy, who has just received the Royal College of Surgeons, Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, Fellowship for his autism work with young people.

 

The honour follows Keith being awarded Philanthropist of the Year earlier this year.  

 

Keith received the Fellowship at a special event which marked the 40th Anniversary of the RCSI Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery.  Kathleen Lynch, TD, Minister for Primary Care, Social Care (Disabilities & Older People) and Mental Health opened the function and spoke highly of Keith's input to helping the autism cause. Keith is a prolific fundraiser and very active in raising awareness for children with autism. He is a Patron for Irish Autism Action (IAA).  Over the last ten years he has helped to raise almost four million euro, which has played a substantial role in the formation and development of services for children with autism and their families.

 

In addition, Keith is a superb event host bringing his natural charm, charisma and enthusiasm to every function he attends.
