July 2004, GlescaPal, Davy,
Leicester, England 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.

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

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.
