RIP Peter, you will be missed

Sir -- The death of Peter Murphy really saddened me as he was the one I looked forward to each Sunday and Tuesday on the crossword. The deaths column, letters page and crossword were my first ports of call each Sunday.

How one small head could carry all he knew is beyond knowing but he must have been a genius in his field. The Sunday crossword was not a repeat of other issues and Peter kept us up to date with modern-day questions and terminology despite his advanced years.

He was very well-known from his visits down the country as question master at quizzes and also from his various radio programmes, and he was a popular man every where he went. Sunday's will not be the same anymore. "Ni bheid a leitheid ann aris."
