A member and former Secretary of his club Coolderry, Pat has been a committed and respected volunteer with the GAA for over 30 years.
He has occupied many roles with the Offaly County Board, including as a long-time P.R.O., followed by five years as Chairperson between 2008 and 2012, and another five years as Central Council delegate.
