  Our lady of Fatima, the Chapel was established  in 1950 and built at No.75 Millerfield Road in 1953.

.

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 boundaries 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.

The parish priest in Our Lady of Fatima chapel in 1983 was Fr. John O'Hagen

The parish priest in Our Lady of Fatima chapel in 1997- was Fr. Jim Lawlor

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.
