A member of a prominent Athlone family, Peter lived and farmed in Ballymore for over 40 years. He loved the GAA and had a special affection for Fr. Dalton's hurling club. Peter was predeceased by his brother Frank, who was synonymous with the Southern Gaels hurling club in Athlone and who were amalgamated with Fr. Dalton's at underage level up until a few years ago. An U10 tournament run by Southern Gaels is named after Frank.
