    The Birth of Celtic

    In eighteen hundred and eighty-eight
    Brother Walfrid walked along the Gallowgate,
    Were immigrants of Ireland walked the streets,
    No food in their stomachs, no shoes on their feet.

    These souls of the famished Irish nation
    Had made their home in Glasgow’s east end,
    Ridiculed & provoked by the Protestant majority
    Who could not accept the Irish faith & identity.

    In Scotland’s east coast, Edinburgh, the capital,
    Had saw the rise in the game of football,
    Where a team, Hibernian, played under Ireland’s harp,
    And brought victory with them onto the park.

    And Brother Walfrid, a Marist priest,
    Saw poverty prosper in his parish,
    He suggested a savior to the Irish nationalist
    Who had never seen a ball been kicked on a pitch.

    A team would be organized; a stadium would be built,
    Players would be sourced who had courage & skill,
    And the income generated from watching the team,
    Would feed the tables of Irish families & children.

    Players were asked, some where even stolen,
    From teams like Cowlairs and Renton,
    Land was rented that was barren and unkept;
    History was about the wake the giant that slept.

    Glasgow’s Irish saw Brother Walfrid’s dream come true
    As an organized football team now grew,
    A Celtic cross was stitched to a white jersey,
    As preparations were made for a “friendly”.

    Glasgow Rangers, the visitors, took to the field,
    Already a threat to the Scottish game,
    But the dominance faded for the team in blue,
    As the Irish team of Celtic won by a score of 5-2

    The birth of Celtic, was Brother Walfrid’s dream,
    As history has favoured the bhoys in green,
    From the legacy of Jock Stein, to the resurgence of Martin O’Neill,
    The passion & commitment can be found on Celtic’s football field.
