Day 197 Peter The Great (Photo A Day 2012)

This is Peter Canavan. In sporting circles and certainly within Gaelic games I would only have to use this mans first name and everyone would know who I meant. He is one of the most decorated players in the history of Gaelic football, winning two All-Ireland Senior Football Championship medals, six GAA All Stars Awards (more than any other Ulster player, and joint third overall) four provincial titles, and two National Leagues and several under-age and club championship medals. He represented Ireland in the International Rules Series on several occasions from 1998 until 2000. He is considered one of the great players of the last twenty years and in 2009, he was named in the list of the 125 Most Influential People In GAA History.

I was recording a video message from him in support of the 32-32-32 penalty kick challenge in aid of the Simon community which takes place next week.
