The museum then presented him with a photograph showing his father Paddy with the noted and highly regarded Dungarvan boxer, Peter Crotty. He was delighted to receive it and gave a speech to thank all those present. He met the Crotty family who were present and reminisced about the olden days. Also present were Gerry O'Mahony, Dungarvan Boxing Club and Eddie Cantwell, Waterford County Museum.
The Crotty family donated Peter Crotty memorabilia, including his golden gloves to the museum, who were delighted to accept them. They will be on display in the museum for future generations to enjoy and cherish.
Afterwards Mr. Martin spent time talking to staff and showed a very pleasant temperament and disposition. He answered questions and showed a keen interest in their work.
