Michael Davitt Museum To Hold Brother Walfrid Books Event

The Michael Davitt Museum in Straide Co Mayo is a hub of Irish history, with a strong connection to Celtic Football Club. After all, Davitt was Celtic’s Club Patron and an influential figure in the early years of the club.

Beyond Davitt’s story, the museum holds a number of interesting events, presentations and talks. One such event is taking place next Saturday 27 May at 7pm. Indeed, that evening there will be a book signing/presentation/Q&A relating to two books on the life of Celtic’s primary founder Brother Walfrid.

One book is Michael Connolly’s Walfrid – A life of Faith, Community and Football, which is the culmination of an in depth PhD study into the great man’s life. Meanwhile, Walfrid’s Great grand-niece Alison Healy has written The Boy Who Started Celtic.

For Celtic fans based in Ireland and particularly in Mayo, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Not only does the event give you a chance to get your hands on two wonderful books about our history, but it also gives you the opportunity to ask questions of these two historians and find out more about the man who created Celtic.

About Author

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up on the English south coast with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic during the Martin O'Neill era. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were previously sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are now available on Amazon.
