Responding to our invite Local Ambassador Keith Walsh said: “It genuinely is a great honour. Having performed my one man show 'Pure Mental' from the stage in the Riverbank during lockdown and I was blown away by the energy and enthusiasm of everyone involved, and feel very grateful to have such a facility on our doorstep. It's so important, especially this year that we all do what we can to support the arts in whatever way possible.”  Keith is a Radio and TV Broadcaster, he currently presents on RTÉ 2FM and RTE Gold, and previously was the lead anchor on RTÉ 2FM’s Early Morning Breakfast Show ‘Breakfast Republic’.
