Donegal Delight As Celtic Make It 9 In A Row

The Celtic Star reported earlier, that fans in Belfast and Derry have been gathering in their cars to celebrate the nine in a row.ย 

That joy was also felt in another part of Ireland โ€“ Donegal, or Gaoth Dobhair (Gweedore) to be precise. The county has a lot of close links with Celtic, including being the location from which a sod of turf was imported to be laid at the new Celtic Park by Michael Davitt in 1892.

Gaoth Dobhair is an Irish language speaking district of Donegal, which has a massive Celtic following.

Supporters gathered in their cars to maintain social distancing and drove around the countryside to celebrate a phenomenal second nine in a row in the clubโ€™s history.

When the current restrictions are lifted and Celtic fans can gather together again there is going to be one almighty massive party when the Bhoys lift that trophy.

And then the next one โ€“ the magical, historical tenth Championship in a row. Welcome to the Party!

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
