The history of the local club, St.Tegans, and its various formations as well as the successes and failures of the clubs are accounted for. Peter also recalls events linked to Gaelic sport such as getting the first football in Kiltegan and listening to one of the first matches he heard on the radio. As well as talking about his own role in the GAA and other figures, Peter also touches on and discusses topics such as emigration, transport throughout the years, the Parnell Split, fundraising, objections, centenary year, Feile na nGael and his journalistic career. The interview ends with Peter talking about what keeps him motivated, what the GAA means to him and what his hopes for the Wicklow football and hurling teams are.
