Muhammad Ali & Jonathan Irwin

The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation recently benefited from  ‘An Evening With The Greatest’ the one and only Muhammad Ali in Dublin , an opportunity that was created for Jack and Jill by Alex Kinne-Coyle age 4 from Bray who is a Jack & Jill child and whose father Declan Coyle made the introduction to Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech earlier this year.  We would like to say a big thank you to Alex and Declan and of course to Dr. Lyons and his team at Alltech for making this possible.

Our CEO Jonathan Irwin said ‘It warms my heart to see how children like Alex and my own son Jack, who may not walk and talk like the rest of us, have such a powerful impact on the people they meet throughout their lives through their own unique charisma and charm.’

“I was lucky enough to attend Muhammad Ali’s fight with Al ‘Blue’ Lewis in Croke Park in 1972 and I’ve been a lifelong fan of the boxer, the man and the legend who continues to be an inspiration to us all.  Thank you Muhammad Ali for taking time out to support Jack & Jill and the 300 families we support today.  The fight goes on.”
