lady of Fatima, the Chapel was at Springfield Road at 75 Millerfield Road,
Following consultation with the Council of Priests for the
Archdiocese, Archbishop Conti decided to close 'Our Lady of Fatima' church
and parish in Dalmarnock in January 2004.
Founded in 1950 from the Eastern area of Sacred Heart and the southern tip
of St. Michael's, Parkhead the majority of the boundries of Our Lady of
Fatima parish have been returned to Sacred Heart. At sunday mass on the 1st
February 2004 the parishioners of Our Lady of Fatima joined with their new
fellow parishioners at Sacred
Heart chapel in Old Dalmarnock Road, Bridgeton.

Sad to see the old "Fatima" up for sale, I mean how can you sell
a chapel ! I was privileged to be captain of Our Lady of Fatima
football team and played when we won the League in 1965. My Father, Davy
Reilly was once a doorman at the Millerfield social club and was so strict
he wouldn't let my brother in because he wasn't a member. He too was
buried out of the Chapel in 1991.

The Fatima aka the Millerfield Club was a favourite waatering hole of mine
in the late 1970's on a Sunday night...spent many a good night down there
with the members of my fitba team. They done a lot of good work at the
time especially in raising money for the operation of the 'Boy David' who
was found in the South American Jungle and operated on by Dr.Jackson a
former pupil of Eastbank Academy.
