fungal/pest disease on apple tree

Can you tell if this is a fungal or pest problem on my apple tree.Some leaves are going brown, others have a mosaic pattern on them and there are holes in the apples. Can you give me advice on how to treat this problem? Berns, Dublin, Co Dublin Posted: 30/08/2016

The wool is due to woolly aphid,a form of greenflly. Use a garden insectide when the apples are gone.

Mosaic patterns are due to leaf-miner burrowing, largely harmless.

Holes in fruit is probably codling moth, apply Nemasys in June, from Mr Middleton. This is eelworm-based and there are no chemical residues.
