The Celtic Trinity

Poem By Daniel McDonagh

The Celtic Cross
The old Celtic Cross adorned the breast
Of the men who wore Celtic’s first strip,
This Christian symbol representing a halo from Christ
Guided Celtic to victory on the pitch.

The Four Leaf Clover
The three leaf clover represents the Holy Trinity
Of Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
The fourth leaf on a shamrock represents God’s Grace
That shines with glory down Parkhead’s way.

The Irish Tricolour
The Irish Tricolour flies high over Celtic Park
In memory of Celtic’s founding fathers,
And it soars with our emerald soul
When we sing of Ireland and her sons & daughters.

Our Proud Heritage

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.

I found myself in Bairds Bar
with a Guinness in my hand
I love the taste of the Irish stout,
as did my old man

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

The Royston Road

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.
