The Holy Grounds Of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest

Many people will have fond memories of the old Holy Ground of Glasgow Celtic LP from the 1960s. It’s a record with a cover as iconic as the accordion bands and music.

Now, The Holy Grounds Of Glasgow Celtic book has been published.

Available exclusively on Amazon, all proceeds from the book go to Celtic FC Foundation.

The book, subtitled “A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest”, is inspired by the old LP, both in title and cover design:


For the first time, a comprehensive guide to Celtic landmarks and sites of interest has been compiled. Many of these places represent historical importance, whilst others are in use to this day.

Naturally, the bulk of locations are found in Glasgow and the surrounding areas, however, the guide does extend across the water to Ireland and beyond.

The idea of titling the book From Paradise To Prague was toyed with as, remarkably, the tangible Celtic connection stretches that far. The Czech capital is not the only continental site that features in the guide either.

Each location is accompanied with photographs, address information and a detailed description of its significance to the Celtic story. It is hoped that the book can serve as a Celtic map of sorts, so that fans can either connect with the club’s history or drink in the present.

The intention is also for the publication to double up as a series of extracts about various parts of the Celtic fairy tale.

Through touring the different sites, everything from legendary players to Celtic’s charitable roots and supporter’s stories can be discovered.

Enjoy the journey.
