Keith has been a huge ambassador to the JDC and we appreciate all he does. Keith has provided a solid academy base now in Ireland and has assisted the JDC on accreditation days, as well as providing teams for the JDC World Cup in previous years. What Keith has proved is that if you are willing to dedicate some time to a passion, the rewards will come through. 

We are delighted to be working more closely with Keith".
