• KEITH STEPPING DOWN AS PATRON OF IRISH AUTISM ACTION

    Boyzone star, Keith Duffy today announced that he is stepping down as patron of Irish Autism Action to concentrate on his family and career. Keith has been actively fundraising and building awareness of children with autism for over ten years and in that time he has helped Irish Autism Action raise over €8,000,000 which contributed significantly to the creation and development of services for children with autism and their families.

    Keith’s role as Patron of Irish Autism Action has cemented corporate partnership down through the years such as O2, Mace, DHL and Dublin Airport Authority. His own personal fundraising initiatives such as KD golf day and KD Masquerade Ball have generated hundreds of thousands for Irish Autism Action. Keith’s endorsement of IAA’s phones for iPads campaign has secured 3,000 iPads for children with autism involving recycling of nearly half a million phones. His public support for 12 early intervention schools in Ireland helped secure state recognition for the schools. Finally, Keith has launched a partnership between Early Childhood Ireland and IAA which over a 3 year period will help create autism friendly pre-school settings.

    CEO of Irish Autism Action Kevin Whelan commented on the announcement saying; “There has been a considerable amount of advantages to having Keith on board with Irish Autism Action but it is impossible to sum up the extent of his work in such little words. On behalf of Irish Autism Action, I would like to thank Keith from the very bottom of all our hearts and wish him the very best in the future, without his stellar campaigning for IAA, we would not be in the place we are today”.

    “Our belief is that awareness drives understanding which in turn drives action. Keith has been key in creating the awareness through his extensive, very personal interviews relating to his family’s journey with autism”.

    Keith has worked with Irish Autism Action by raising much needed funds through various charity soccer matches, the Keith Duffy Ball, Ironman 70.3, Keith Duffy 5k in Phoenix Park, Tour De Force Cycle, Connemarathon, Keith Duffy Masquerade Ball, Blue Nose Day and other successful fundraising events.

    Despite stepping down, Keith has promised he will see through a number of events that he has set up for Irish Autism Action for 2015, including National Pyjama Day on 6th March which is set to raise significant funds for IAA over the next three years.

    The big-hearted pop star heaped praise on the organisers of the Cycle 4 Causes initiative, which will benefit four charities, including his own special project Irish Autism Action.

    “I want to thank everyone involved for Cycle 4 Causes for their wonderful support for Irish Autism Action in raising €13,500 last year,” he explains.

    “I remain in awe of people who, even in these difficult times, can still think of other people in need.

    “The support our charity receives makes a great difference to families affected by autism.

    “Autism, as many will know, has touched my own family and I am pleased to say that my own daughter Mia has made great strides with the support that she has received through Irish Autism Action.”

    Other charities benefiting including Inner City Helping Homeless, Friends of the Coombe and My Canine Companion – Autism Service Dogs.

    One of the organisers, James McDermot, from Sheriff Street, Dublin, says he is “delighted” to have Keith on board.

  15. hi, my sister in law is writing a book for children to explain about autism and aspergers. she has been trying to find a way of contacting you on a more personal level with regard to a possible book signing upon publication. However, it has proved impossible to reach you via your agent or anyone else in the business. How do we go about contacting you please? many thanks

    Sorry to say but by writing on here, Keith won't see your message personally as this is a fan run site. Keith has a twitter account - linked above - where he is more likely to see it for himself
