Born in 1977, Peter is a former Irish scrum-half and had an incredible rise to fame when he broke into the International team in 2000 before playing his last game in 2011 in Ireland’s 24-8 win against England. In between he inspired Munster to Heineken Cup glory.
Stringer proved the following year that he was no one-season wonder, and it wasn’t long before his crisp accurate passing was noticed by the Irish selectors.
“I was furious at the time but sport is about incidents and he got away with it which probably incensed the whole of Ireland at the time.”
In 2003 Ireland suffered a humiliating defeat against England a game that decided the Grand Slam as Stringer looked back on that game with sheer disappointment.
Stringer played a key role for Munster when winning the 2006 Heineken Cup scoring their second try in the 23-19 win over Biarritz.
At 5’ 7” Stringer tackled and mixed with the best during his glittering career and Cork is proud to have produced such a lion-hearted player.
