Celtic FC – the Ireland Connection

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. A fascinating, must-read book for supporters of Celtic Football Club in Ireland, Scotland and around the world.
