Famous Clontarfians

Over the years, many men of great merit and stature have left the town of Clontarf on quests of great importance. However, one Clontarfian stands alone in his character and international fame. Young Peter, a legend in his own time, completed many famous deeds and accomplished numerous perilous tasks to become the most acclaimed Clontarfian of his time. Aside from single handedly defeating the Nazi's in World War II, he also assassanaited Fidel Castro in the late 80's, though that only recently became public knowledge through Wikileaks. Even without that information, Pete's defeat of the horrifying zombie horde threatening to take over the northern part of Minnesota cannot be forgotten. Never heard of that battle? Well you probably haven't because it occured on the oustkirts of Clontarf... or, as it's more commonly known, the middle of scenic nowhere. This lack of appreciation from the media did not stop the townspeople from building a 300 foot tall golden staute to Pete, though this served only to anger the humble hero, who promptly tore it down and sold it to benefit the elderly. Now, he strives to bring mediocrity and averageness to the many students of Portsmouth Abbey School, though he secretly doubles as a CIA agent come the night. The full implications of his actions may not be known for years, but one thing is for sure; this is a legend all can believe in.
