The Four Leaf Clover

Poem By Daniel McDonagh

The first leaf is for Brother Walfrid,
the guardian of Celtic men,
he fed the poor of Irish stock
in Glasgow's east end.

The second leaf is for Jock Stein
for he took the Celtic up
to face the mighty of Europe
by winning the European Cup.

The third leaf is for the Celtic,
the passion in our eyes,
where we've grown old with the memories
in the shrine of Paradise.

The fourth leaf is for the Celtic fans,
they are the strength in Celtic's fight,
who've been faithful through the history
of the famous green & white.

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.
