County Cavan Newspaper , December 13th. 1852

“Peter proved his prowess in the party fights between
Orange and Green, which occurred in Ballieborough, as
wel as in other towns of Ulster, in former days.
Peter always headed his party, and with a good
shillelagh or a blackthorn cudgel, he was able at any
time to thrash a score of Orangemen, and often knocked
down a dozen of them with his own hand.”
