Pat Fenlon was one of the first from the Catholics to play for Linfield

Quite honest about his reasons. Being away for most of the day when you have young kids is always a problem. None of his games are more than 90 minutes away. How many of us who travelled 90mins+ each way to work in Dublin are now happily working from home? The fact that himself and David Healey both live in Bangor meant they cross paths quite a lot. The change hasn't altered his commitment much. Most likely fuming with conceding an equaliser against 10 men, as seen from his booking with 4mins left.

My uncle Jim "shadow" Hearty was left full for Dundalk in the 1940's. Linfield tried to sign him as their first catholic player, naturally enough he turned them down.

Just reading online about that game today, Lindfield v Glentoran, 10k at it, which is their 'boxing day' reg fixture, huge crowd, but can't bee too many leagues where there is such a variance with the same clubs on crowds, Linfield avg before this was 2,200 this season, that's a huge drop, and lower than our avg.

Didn't our own Dessie Gorman play for Linfield before Fenlon?

Jamie McGrath close to a pre contract agreement with Aberdeen. Aberdeen a bigger club then St Mirren with a decent 20k Capacity stadium in Pittodrie.
Though thought he would have got a move to a Championship club. Middlesbrough were linked previously but changed manager since then.
