Celtic sends its support to the families of Creeslough Tragedy

Celtic Football Club has sent most sincere condolences to the families of the 10 people who tragically died in Creeslough, Donegal on Friday and the club has offered its full support to the entire community, which is suffering so much at this difficult time.

Through the club’s charitable arm, Celtic FC Foundation, £10,000 will be donated to the Creeslough Community Support Fund in the aftermath of this heart-breaking event.

The Support Fund has been set up by the Irish Red Cross in collaboration with An Post and Applegreen to provide rapid and long-term assistance to the Creeslough community.

All donations to this Fund will help support those who have been bereaved, injured, made homeless, or left without an income as a result of the tragedy.

The Irish Red Cross will work with the community of Creeslough in the days and weeks ahead to ensure that all contributions will be used effectively and as needed to assist those affected by this incident.

Donegal has a long and emotional connection with Celtic Football Club. The area is home to a large contingent of Celtic supporters, one of whom being Martin McGill, who tragically lost his life in the incident.

Celtic send heartfelt sympathies to the families of all of the victims and the people of Creeslough.

Everyone at Celtic and the entire Celtic support’s thoughts, prayers and support are with you all at this difficult time.

You’ll Never Walk Alone.

A period of silence will be held prior to kick-off tonight and the players will wear black armbands during the game, in memory of the 10 people who tragically lost their lives in Creeslough, County Donegal on Friday.
