Peter Stackpoole RIP

Peter Stackpoole RIP

Sad news in County Kerry earlier this month when Peter Stackpoole, owner of Kingdom Rads, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of just 60.

Peter was a very popular figure where he lived in Lixnaw, and worked in Tralee. He was a native of Lower Athea, in County Limerick.

He was a hard-working man and ran his own business Kingdom Rads in Tralee (CWS Complex, Upper Rock Street) for over 25 years. They offer new and reconditioned radiators for all makes of vehicles. The business also carries out windscreen repairs.

Peter’s deepest love and pride was his family. He was very proud of his children and will always be remembered by them as extremely hard working, loving, generous, caring, and a great father.

Peter always had a very positive attitude to life and he loved being around people and always saw the best in others.

He loved being involved in Lixnaw GAA and they loved having him. He considered each and every member of the club a dear friend of his. He went to all of Martin’s matches and was the proudest man on the field watching Martin play in goals for both Lixnaw and Kerry.

A great friend of Peter described him in the following way: “Peter was a farmer’s son, mechanic, salesman, barman, racehorse owner, greyhound owner, GAA man, singer, friend to everyone but above all the best and proudest father I have ever come across. Lixnaw and the Railway Bar will never be the same without you”.

Our sincere condolences to Peter’s son Martin, his daughter Samantha, their mother Marie, Martin’s partner Karolina, his brothers John, Tom and Dan and sisters, Hannah Mai Murphy and Helen Cregan, other relatives, kind neighbours, everyone at Kingdom Rads, and his very large circle of friends.
