Keith Duffy, Ireland’s favourite musician, actor, and presenter was back in training; but the Boyzone star’s latest sporting challenge was just ‘a walk in the park’! The patron of Irish Autism Action was leading a charity fun run yesterday morning Sunday, 30th June, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, and welcomed the hundreds of people who walked, ran, or simply strolled the short 5k route around the park to help raise some much-needed funds for the Irish autism group. Funds raised by the Keith Duffy 5k will go towards Ireland’s first National Diagnostic and Assessment Centre for autism, and to the National Autism Helpline, which provides advice and support for people with an autistic spectrum disorder, and their families.
