We recently caught up with Padraig Egan of Club Rossie Travel Partners Axe Forestry.
Originally from Doon, Co. Offaly Padraig’s roots are now firmly in Roscommon soil and in particular the Michael Glaveys Club.
Padraig, why did Axe Forestry become a Club Rossie Travel Partner?
“To help Roscommon GAA prepare teams at all levels. If a county has a successful GAA team it gives the whole county a lift.”
What is your most memorable Roscommon GAA Moment?
“Michael Glaveys getting to the All-Ireland Club Final.”
And while your at it tell us your most memorable Offaly GAA moment.
“Seeing the Senior Footballers win the Leinster Final in 1997!”
Who is your favourite Roscommon player of all time?
“Dermot Earley. Because he was a player with all the skills of the game and a gentleman to meet. And he was a Glaveys Man!”

Finally, if you were the next GAA President what’s the one thing about the Association that you’d change?
“I would change the title County Chairperson to County CEO and make it a full-time paid position. The current structure is unsustainable as it’s just too much work for volunteers and won’t be able to continue.”
