Denis Donovan

Denis was born in Ireland. He served in the Second World War in the RAF. He was a councillor and Mayor of Fairfield during his political career.

Tommy McDermott came to see me along with another branch stalwart, Fred Jones. And they'd been, Fred had been on council for one term and Tommy had tried before but unsuccessfully. So they suggested that they were yesterday's people and they needed younger candidates and I had a young family, I lived in the area, and so forth. They thought I'd be ideal as number one.
