Mulholland, Jimmy Currently sitting with my dad (Jimmy’s brother) and he’s telling me all about the excitement of him and his career as a young lad. My dad was the youngest in the family and he remembers his own dad and how proud he was of Jimmy!

Mulholland, Jimmy Jimmy Mulholland when he played for Barrow the mid sixties in the team that gained promotion from the fourth to the third division was one of the most talented gifted players to play on Holier Street.
What a truely great player he was. A favourite with the fans ,he scored some memorable goals. I am so pleased to say that I saw him when I was a young boy, his touch on the ball was tremendous.
It's no wonder he was at Chelsea albeit for a short period ,his physique just not strong enough for the top division,but in my opinion goes down as a player that gave me pleasure and I thoroughly enjoyed watching R.I.P
