A CROWD turned out to see a memorial bench unveiled in memory of a popular city figure.

Billy Munnelly, who died in July 2017, played a big part in Oxford’s Gaelic football and Aunt Sally scenes. He was 70.

He also raised thousands of pounds for good causes and city councillor Mick Haines was keen to see his legacy marked.

Mr Haines paid for a memorial bench and a white willow tree, both of which are now based at the Croft Road Recreation Ground in Marston.

Mr Munnelly moved to Oxford in the 1960s and was a regular figure at the Cowley Workers Social Club.

Marston independent councillor Mr Haines, Mr Munnelly’s brother and BBC Radio Oxford presenter Henry Wymbs all attended the ceremony.
