Ireland Women's Sevens head coach Jon Skurr has announced a 12-woman squad for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow (June 29-30).
Peter has worked tirelessly at senior committee level and also with the youth and mini rugby section of the club for many years and is still very active at both levels. He originally became involved with Connemara RFC back in 1977 and also played for the club for about 10 years.
He has served the club well as a committee member since 1977 and has also served as PRO for many years. He is well known in many circles for promoting and encouraging involvement in Connemara rugby.
His roles in the club currently include: Mini Coach, Youth Chairperson, Youth Fundraising, Branch Delegate, Pitch Committee, Lotto Committee and Website team.
A love of rugby and community are without a doubt only two reasons for such dedicated involvement. At training, games and events, Peter is known for his ability to relate to and encourage all players all the way from Mini rugby right up to the seniors.
He has seen many mini players make their way through the ranks up to the senior team. The youth and mini sections are delighted that the nomination was successful and that Peter's dedication has been recognised by Connemara RFC and Connacht Rugby.
