By Paul O’Donovan

It was 7pm, Thursday evening. It was bitterly cold outside, baltic, -2 and frost everywhere. You wouldn’t put a dog out in weather like it. I decided to phone Ger Egan. He had announced his retirement from Westmeath football just two days earlier. Ger couldn’t talk to me just then…..he was going for a run! Going for a run in weather like that!! … well that is the kind of dedication to training that sees you get selected for the Westmeath football team for over 12 years.
