    A great man and character, condolences to all the Dunnes. I remember having a €50 bet with him while watching a Chelsea Liverpool game after we all went out in Dalkey after a match. Liverpool won the match and Pete won the money, instead of pocketing the money he put it behind the bar for all the team. A sign of his generosity and team spirit.

    Hope to see ye all in Croke Park next week for the Cuala/Crokes double.
