Peter J. Coleman
Peter Coleman, a Tipperary Hill publican (saloonkeeper) for over 50 years, is well known not only for his innovative marketing of his Authentic Irish Pub, but also for his leadership in preserving the character of Tipperary Hill in Syracuse. Peter has purchased and refurbished several properties on Tipperary Hill for rental properties and has spearheaded efforts to create green space parks complete with monuments that reflect the heritage of Tipperary Hill residents. Monuments like the Stonethrower’s Monument in Tipperary Hill Memorial Park just below the famous “green-on-top” traffic light; a monument to Ukrainian Freedom fighter Taras Schevchenko in front of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church; the Celtic Cross at the foot of Tipperary Hill and a monument to Peter’s friend, Syracuse jeweler Jerry Wilson in Wilson Memorial Park. Most recently Peter purchased Rosie O’Grady’s and transformed it into a popular sports bar renamed Rosie’s Sports Pub and Grill at the gateway to Tipperary Hill. Congratulations Peter!
