Ronan has been a top first team player for Davitts for the last twelve seasons although serious injuries to his back and both knees has interrupted his football career somewhat. One of the outstanding midfielders in the county, Ronan has represented Mayo at all grades. His fielding ability and superb long range shooting both from open play and placed balls makes Ronan a hugely valuable player and the commitment he gives the club is a great example to the younger players. Honoured with the first team captaincy this year, Ronan is keen to make his mark as Davitts return to the senior ranks in Mayo. As well as Gaelic football, Ronan is a big fan of Irish dancing, and follows the career of his idol, Michael Flatley very closely. No mean dancer himself and regularly takes to the dancefloor on social occasions, he memorably danced himself to a standstill at the club’s Dinner Dance three years ago.
