That's a shock, didn't always agree with his political views but he was sincere in his opinions. RIP.

He was a good man. A patriot.
He wasn't one of the greasy tillers or green gansei crowd.
Also he was intelligent.

(The background noise is Dara Murphy speaking nonsense over Stephen Donnelly that's some contrast)

Sad news.

He was the most entertaining TD of the last Dail.

He also had a conscience which is saying a lot.....

He always struck me as being as straight as a dye.

Condolences to his family.

A man of integrity, so he didn't fit well with FG.

RIP

I have a life.
I never thought Peter was of the oirish political ilk...that is why I did have time for him. I feel he always meant well and was trying to balance reality from two different points.

May he Rest In Peace.

Whether you agreed with him or not, you couldn't question his veracity.
RIP.

I met him when he was canvassing in Knocklyon in 2011. His mother was with him - a very charming elegant lady.
Sorry to hear he has died. A very decent individual I thought.

Very sad. Very decent and honourable man. A big loss to public life.
