Peter Canavan


UCD Centenary Sigerson Dinner



Over 500 people attended a presentation dinner on Saturday 5th March in the O'Reilly Hall at UCD honouring Dr George Sigerson and the Ulster Bank Sigerson Cup Team of the Century. The address was given by Her Excellency, Mary McAleese, President of Ireland.

St Mary’s has been participating in the competition since 1988 and it is a tremendous achievement that one former player was named on the Team of the Century. It will come as little surprise that the player concerned is Peter Canavan who attended the College from 1990 to 1994. Peter is one of the "Greats" of Gaelic Games. Former Head of Physical Education, Jim McKeever, and the College Principal attended the presentation dinner as both were at the team management helm when St Mary’s won the Sigerson Cup in 1989.
