Peter Kennedy (born 10 September 1973) is a Northern Irish football defender/midfielder, who currently plays for Donegal Celtic. In 1995/96 he was named as the Ulster Footballer of the Year. After his first spell in Northern Ireland he had a successful spell in English football, initially joining Notts County in August 1996 where he scored once against Newcastle Town in the FA Cup, before moving onto Watford a season later. This led to arguably the highlight of his career when he helped Watford gain promotion to the Premier League in 1999. He left Watford at the end of the 2000/01 campaign and spent three seasons at Wigan, spending a period on loan at Derby County where he scored once against Ipswich Town. His final English club was Peterborough United, after which he returned to Northern Ireland. At the end of the 2007-08 season Peter did not have his contract renewed by Portadown and left the club. He began training with Ballymena United FC but decided to retire from his footballing career to focus on becoming an accountant. After a year Peter came out of retirement and made a return to football by signing for Donegal Celtic FC who play in the IFA Championship.
