GAA president Aogán Ó Fearghail has led the tributes to the legendary Wicklow Gael Peter Keogh, who sadly passed away yesterday evening.
The much-loved 86-year-old from Kiltegan served as Wicklow GAA president for over 20 years and was widely known as the voice of Wicklow GAA through his reporting in The Wicklow People since 1972.
The GAA president commented: "On behalf of the wider GAA family I'd like to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Peter Keogh.
"He served the GAA with distinction in variety of ways for so long and we are all saddened to learn of his passing. We offer our sympathies particularly to his daughters Josie and Breda. Solas síoraí dá anam uasal."
