During his College Days, between 1968 & 1973, apart from being an active playing member of D.U.F.C and Trinity Soccer club, Pedro Ribeiro was elected to the S.R.C. where he served as Education Officer. He was also elected on to the first Student/Staff Capitation Committee. Pedro Ribeiro was Entertainments Officer of D.U.F.C for a year during which he had responsibility for the usage of the Pavilion and other college facilities for social activities which also included the Annual Colours Ball in Leopardstown. In 1973 he organised the first ever Inter Varsity Sevens in College Park and as a result the club generated sufficient funds to bring three Trinity teams on tour to Scotland.
