Keith Duffy has said he’s the “proudest dad in the world” after his daughter Mia was accepted into a course at Trinity College Dublin.
He posted a photo of the 17-year-old, who has autism, standing outside the historic gates of the southside college, in a message that saw him inundated with well-wishes.
“My darling Mia at the gates of TCD doing a course on 3rd level education! Who would have believed it? Well done on all your achievements baby #nevergiveup #theskyisthelimit,” he wrote.
Responding to his post, one user said: “As a mother of a child with profound autism, your post has given me hope.”
