Boyzone singer and actor Keith Duffy has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery in recognition of his fundraising work and activism for children with autism.
Since 2001, Duffy, a Patron for Irish Autism Action (IAA), has helped to raise almost 4 million euro for autistic children and their families.
Honorary Secretary of the RCSI Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, Catherine Clune Mulvaney, said: "I recommend Mr Keith Duffy for the highest honour this Faculty can bestow for his work as an outstanding advocate for children with autism and their families."
She continued: "His hard work and determination have raised vital funding for specialist service development across the country, increasing the availability of much needed education programmes and support structures."
She added: "Keith continues to inspire families and provide hope for those who are faced with the initial shock of an autism diagnosis, by raising awareness about autism in the public domain and highlighting the need for early intervention, appropriate education and care for children with autism."

ITV has confirmed more details about The Job Lot's second season – and it includes the casting of Boyzone star Keith Duffy.
The sitcom will begin its second run on ITV2 in the autumn before screening later on the main channel, with Russell Tovey and Sarah Hadland returning as Karl and Trish.
Casualty's Laura Aikman has joined the cast as new Deputy Manager Natalie, while Sophie McShera, Tony Maudsley, Jo Enright, Martin Marquez, Angela Curran and Adeel Akhtar all return.
Among the second season's guest stars are Meera Syal as a CEO of a Midlands hot tub company and Keith Duffy as a telephone engineer with a 'roving eye'.
"It's great to welcome back the brilliantly beleaguered workers and job seekers of the Brownall Job Centre - and this time round with some excellent guest stars, who'll be joining our regular ensemble comedy cast," said Elaine Bedell, ITV's director of comedy & entertainment.
Since 2006, Keith Duffy has built up an acting career, playing roles in shows such as Fair City, Coronation Street and Love/Hate, as well as appearing on stage in the likes of John B Keane's Big Maggie.
