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 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.
Review by David Potter, originallly posted on old KeepTheFaith Forum This recently published book is a book of passion, clearly written by a man who feels about his subject, namely the connection between Ireland and Celtic. It is of course a massive subject but the author in pages does his best to show us the indissoluble connection between the country he loves and the Club he loves.
The pre-history of Celtic is well handled with an account of the Famine, Brother Walfrid and sods of turf from Donegal etc.

There is also a good summary of the life of Willie Maley - an Irishman, although by no means a conventional one for his father was a British soldier and he himself was miffed at not getting to meet Princess Mary of Teck the future Queen Mary at Richmond in And there's a brief resume of the other Celtic from Belfast, although we could have done with a little more about Charlie Tully in this context. There are the lyrics of Irish songs sung by Celtic fans today - one would have wished for a few more of them sung by Celtic fans through the ages.
And there is a list of players of Irish birth or extraction who have played for the Club, including a few rare ones.
