My condolences to Peterโ€™s family. Peter was the best goalkeeper to have played for Waterford. As a young boy going to Kilcohan, I was inspired by Peter and became a goalkeeper because of him. Peter was generous with his time and helped me develop as a young goalkeeper. I will be forever grateful. He helped create some of the greatest memories for a young boy back when The Blues were the best. May Peter Rest In Peace. He will be missed.
