Dillon, Kevin Kevin played cricket with me and Ian Atkins, Roy Mc Donough, and Ian Paul. I was captain, trying to keep that in check. The club was Old Silhillians 2nd team.

Dillon, Kevin Hi. I worked on a building site in Washington in 1989 Northumberland we built a site for Maclean Holmes’s and Kevin Dillon bought a house on the site. What a lovely man he was with a smashing wife and then I think 2 twins (lads) so they could be now about 36 or 37 now. I would love to meet back up with Kevin again and his family very good memories. Thanks
