I am Irish, but Ireland aren't in the World Cup, so I am supporting Sweden because I like the Swedish team plus my favourite ever footballer is playing for them.

Yeah Celtic is a Scottish team, but they have a massive Irish fanbase...

Quote:
The early days and Brother Walfrid

Celtic Football Club was formally constituted at a meeting in St. Mary's church hall in East Rose Street (now Forbes Street), Calton, Glasgow, by Marist Brother Walfrid on November 6, 1887, with the purpose stated in the official club records as "being to alleviate poverty in Glasgow's East End parishes".

The charity established by Brother Walfrid was named 'The Poor Children's Dinner Table'.

Walfrid's move to establish the club as a means of fund-raising was largely inspired by the example of Hibernian who were formed out of the immigrant Irish population a few years earlier in Edinburgh. Walfrid's own suggestion of the name 'Celtic' (pronounced Seltik), was intended to reflect the club's Irish and Scottish roots, and was adopted at the same meeting. Some have believed this is to also show the diveristy of Glasgow's Catholic community which had significant numbers of Italian, Lithuanian, Polish and Highlanders among their worship as well as the Irish majority.
That's a bit of Celtic's history from Wikipedia......Celtic has always had major ties to the Irish, hence a lot of Irish people support Celtic.

In fact the majority of Irish football fans likely support someone in either the English Premiership or in the Scottish Premiership.

Irish football...are you talking about this kind?

If you're talking about the kind where you're not allowed to use your hands, I think that's called "association football" or "soccer" for short.

End snark.

In Ireland it's always Celtic or Man United who get supported.


Although nowadays i guess there will be quite a few 'new' Chelsea supporters suddenly popping up there too

Haven't actually noticed that yet...support for teams, usually goes Man Utd, Celtic, Liverpool, Arsenal then random teams.

Yes Tre Irish league sucks But it is usually good fun to watch...some of the teams could probably do well in the English first division.

Oh and J_NP, if I was talking about Gaelic I would have called it Gaelic:P
