Keith Farr of Hillstone School, Shard End, Birmingham, received a special award for his services to Irish Culture from Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, the international organisation that fosters all aspects of the traditional arts of Ireland.

Keith is a member of the Hurling Boys music group and has developed an interest for the music and song of Ireland.  Although Keith is not Irish, he has gained a great insight into Irish culture by performing with the Hurling Boys. Keith is pictured here (centre) with the leader of the Hurling Boys Pat Brennan (right) and Comhaltas President Vince Jordan, who presented the award at Hillstone School.  The three musicians entertained the students at the school assembly.
