Celtic FC: The Ireland Connection

By (author) Brian McGuirk

Celtic Football Club has a huge support in Ireland, many of whom regularly travel to watch their team in Glasgow or follow them on TV. Now, “Celtic FC – The Ireland Connection” explores the deep-rooted links between Celtic Football Club, Ireland and the 90 million supporters of Irish descent throughout the world – links which include the club’s founder Brother Walfrid from Sligo; the first sod of turf on Celtic Park in 1892 from Donegal; why the Irish flag flies over the stadium; Celtic’s first manager, Willie Maley from Newry; emigration from Ireland to Scotland; and, the many Irish players and staff who have played or managed at Celtic. This is a fascinating, must-read book for supporters of Celtic Football Club in Ireland, Scotland and around the world.
