Ronan packed trunks – and said hello to circus

‘Boring’ is one word you could never use to describe Roscommon football and many of the players who’ve donned the Primrose and Blue.


  One such player is Ronan Brady from Elphin, who has a Connacht medal to his name from his days as a player on Fergal O’Donnell’s panel.

  However, Brady fell out of love with the game following a series of injuries and swapped the football for contemporary circus acts such as the Cyr wheel and trapeze.

  He has since taken up the contemporary circus scene full-time following his resignation from his job as a secondary school teacher. Brady spends a good deal of time perfecting his act in Quebec, Canada, the home of these circus disciplines.
