Some of Keith’s earliest memories are helping his parents in the Glenavon House Hotel. “We’re from Cookstown originally and my parents owned the Glenavon and I would have done all sorts there, from lifting glasses and washing dishes, to checking stock,” he said. However, when Keith was 15, at the height of the Troubles, the couple made the decision to sell up and move away from Co Tyrone town.
“The idea was always to continue to grow the brand, so when the opportunity came up to buy the Rosspark, I was keen to do it,” he explained.
