From the very earliest days of Celtic the highs and lows of the Bhoys have been recorded in song. Indeed there can be few – if any – other clubs whose supporters can boast the vast repertoire of songs that have been performed through the decades by the fans of Celtic.
It seems strange then that it has taken so long for a book to finally tackle such a seemingly obvious subject. Thankfully though ‘Celtic & Ireland in Song and Story’ has been well worth the wait.
Authors Raymond Daly – a member of the Mid Leinster CSC – and Derek Warfield (of The Wolfe Tones) have spent years working on this book and from the opening pages it is clear that this has been a real labour of love.
