An extraordinary knowledge of Textiles and Materials then acquired, Peter joined his father Leo in Middle Abbey Street as a Manufacturer’s agent and Importer of Woollen Worsted cloth, Plastic sheeting and components. He sold successfully to the Manufacturing, Wholesale and Retail trades for a number of years.

Later he became a manufacturer of clocks specialising in the hunting, fishing and country scenes. He exhibited at the Dublin Horse Show, Kilkenny and Cork amongst other venues. As a mature student, he studied Computer Science and obtained an honours degree in Business Studies. Being a great traveller, Peter visited many places of interest, but his favourite haunt was New York where he made good friends. Peter had a number of passions in his life including Show jumping, Chess, Computers, Jazz and Cricket.
