But too often these criticisms stray into the personal with unhelpful inferences about Roy’s character, loyalty, morals, etc.
As somebody who has witnessed first hand the extraordinary generosity, intelligence, warmth and compassion of Roy Keane in the work that he does for our organisation (and more importantly his deep connection and empathy with people with disabilities), the criticism seems somewhat misplaced. Roy’s achievements as a sportsman is the stuff of legend. His commitment and dedication to people off the field are a wonderful reality for our organisation.
