Henry Winkler Wins Honoury OBE

Congratulations to Henry Winkler, who has been appointed an honorary OBE for his educational work on dyslexia in the UK.
Henry received the honour at the British embassy in Washington DC.
The actor-turned-children's author,(of the Hank Zipzer series) who was diagnosed with dyslexia as an adult, said he was "overwhelmed" to have his work recognised.
Over the past two years, he has toured schools in the UK and Ireland talking about the learning disability.
Wherever he went he inspired young children and adults alike with his infectious sense of humour and positive outlook on life.  We hope to see him return to Ireland someday soon.
