Colourful and very creative. Pete will tell those stories when the Senators visit Kenmare during the summer. Pete has a claim to fame other than playing football for Kerry: in May 1969, he was asked to cut the hair of Charles de Gaulle, no less, after the latter had resigned as President of France. The whole world was looking for de Gaulle. He was staying in Reen-Na-Furraha. Our good friend Pete Hanley was asked not only to cut his hair but to shave him as well. They had a great conversation. He relayed the conversation but is now a State secret and will not be released until the remainder of the time covered by the 100-year rule is up. I wish Pete and all his family a great celebration on Saturday.
