As Celtic supporters we’re all hugely familiar with the name Brother Walfrid, but how much do we actually know about the man himself?
In a new piece of work, Dr Michael Connolly has opened the door on one of the most important figures in the history of Celtic Football Club.
A man who without his vision, there may be no Celtic to speak of.
It’s an enlightening tale of the man who – like so many others of the time – made the journey from Ireland to Scotland in the mid-19th century in search of a better life.
Instead, Walfrid’s lifetime would be committed to improving the lives of others.
As the title of the book tells us, his life was one of “Faith, Community & Football” and is a story which deserves to be heard by the wider Celtic audience.
Enjoy this special episode with Dr Michael Connolly.
“Walfrid: A Life of Faith, Community & Football” is available now at:
