Photos: Celtic Murals Around The World

Celtic is a club steeped in culture and the arts. Emanating from the Irish and Ireland’s diaspora, folk music and writing has been at the forefront, with countless songs, books, magazines and fanzines composed. However, there is also a large amount of Celtic artwork that has been produced. Not only is this done by artists and more recently Ultras groups, but it has taken the form of mural painting for many years.

These murals are primarily in Ireland, but internationally too.

About Author

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.
