The Pillars

The Pillars were a soccer team of Newry/Bessbrook some sixty years ago. Sadly the majority here have passed on. But still very much alive and the donor of the photograph, is Dickie Rodgers, third from the left at the back.

The Captain was my old friend Adrian (Aidan) D’Arcy. Brenda, his widow still lives out in The Gardens, Bessbrook. 


I’m sure you can recognise many more faces and names. In case you cannot read the caption under the photograph, I reproduce here their names.
