From February to July 1987 I was the Athens Correspondent for the London Daily News which was launched by the Mirror Group Newspapers Ltd. of London, England.
Unfortunately, the newspaper lasted only five months but I had the opportunity to write a number of articles including the general labor strike in Greece (February), strike threat by Greek clergy (March), snow in Athens (March), European Cup Winners Cup football final (May 13), pair held for AIDS (May 15), Greek basketball wins European finals (June 14-15), Britons murder - 2 held (June 30), Corfu death fall (July 2), colossus hand may be a fake (July 10), Greek soccer club signs Biley (July 16-17), Eggar visits Athens (July 29), Greek paper angry at British court (July 29) and Ecclestone supports Greek paper (July 29).
My contact at the newspaper was Mike MacLachlan, Chief Sub Editor (Foreign).
