(Oldest Posts First)

Tomsmith here from Cavan

The death has occurred of Peter Pritchard London formally Galbolie, Bailieborough, Cavan , 25th March 2023 .
Peter was one of the greatest servants to Cavan football ., With Steve Duggan, Raymie Carlon, Enda Mc Gowan Cavan was then a strong force in Ulster
He was in his prime in the late sixties before he emigrated away over to London.
As many Cavan people who visited LOndon would know if you fell on hard times Peter was the man to go to.
He went into Politics and was elected on a Liberial democrat tictet in London.
No mean fete for a Cavan man .
He never lost the common touch and was always interested how football was going in Cavan
May he rest in peace

Sad to hear that. Many a time I visited his pub in the old Kent Road in London.
Very involved in the Gaa in London . Think he won a few championships with Garyowen back in the day.
Tough player who could play in defence or attack.

Your reputation precedes you on here tomsmith, so people will naturally avoid interacting. Maybe leave the sincere posts to others.

RIP Peter Pritchard
