"When Peter was one year old, the O’Toole’s moved to Northern England & began a five-year tour of that region’s major racetrack towns. Then they settled in the grim Yorkshire city of Leeds, where Peter suffered through seven or eight years of hated Catholic School education, in which nuns beat him to change his left-handedness."

Football link to Sunderland?

"The Echo began by confirming the book reference. To quote snippets from O’Toole’s memoirs, his dad – “Captain Pat” – had “served an apprenticeship as a metal plater and shipwright in the North East of England, where my grandmother ran a pair of second-hand furniture shops. At the end of Great War his 20s were running out and he turned to gambling. Captain Pat lived … as an itinerant racetrack bookmaker.”"
