Brother Walfrid Stands By Parkhead's Gates

Poem By Daniel McDonagh

The Celtic songs filled heaven's sky
and we marched along the Gallowgate
Joined by comrades, brothers and sisters,
As Brother Walfrid stood by Parkhead's gates.

The Celtic passion is such devotion,
Heritage, culture and our faith,
Our father’s father bore the tradition,
While Brother Walfrid stood by Parkhead's gates.

In the Garngad, from the parish of St.Roch’s,
Ireland’s sons and daughters would pray,
From the Royston Road, we would find our spiritual home
As Brother Walfrid’s soul welcomed us through Parkhead’s gates.

Our Irish inheritance we will cradle,
With the Glasgow Celtic, we will celebrate,
On the Holy Ground will play heroes & legends,
Blessed by Brother Walfrid who stands by Parkhead's gates.

The green and white drapes over our heart
As we are educated on the Celtic way,
And as we gather within Celtic Park,
Brother Walfrid stands by Parkhead’s gates.

My name is McDonagh, at seven years old
I took to the wearing of the green, white & gold,
i follow the Celtic, the team of my choice,
like my father before me, I follow the Bhoys.

On a homestead in County Wicklow
To celebrate the birth of a Saint,
Of the Holy life he would lead.

To the Royston Road, we made our way,
To kick our heels and rejoice,
Were children of all ages wore the green,
And voices sang songs of the Bhoys.

Irish Heart & Celtic Soul

My great-granddad came from Sligo
And in Glasgow, he found his dream,
Side by side with his fellow compatriots,
He embraced the Bhoys in green.

The Laird Of Glasghu

The Laird of Glasghu possessed no heart,
His soul was as black as the devils eyes,
He condemned the fate of the angel Neir
For her Christian teachings, he considered papist lies.
