Esther Fallon RIP

Those of us who knew her will be sorry to hear of the passing early this morning of Esther Fallon, wife of John Fallon, goalkeeper of Celtic FC from 1958 until 1972, and still a supporter.

Esther had been in poor health for some time.

She was always a great tower of strength to John, and she was a lovely lady as well.

She and John married in March 1962, had five children and a whole host of grandchildren, some of whom can often be seen with John at Celtic Park on match days.

RIP Esther, and our thoughts and prayers will be with John at this difficult time.
