Celtic To Honour Victims Of The Famine On Their Jerseys Today

Celtic To Honour Victims Of The Famine On Their Jerseys Today
By Conor Neville

Five points behind Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premier League, Celtic take on Hearts at home today looking to close the gap.

There is a downbeat air around Celtic Park following their exit from the Champions League, and the 13,591 attendance at their recent game against Raith Rovers was their lowest in 21 years.

Today, the club are to honour the victims of the Famine as they wear the National Famine Memorial Day logo on their shirts.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawell said that the club  is 'inextricably linked' to the Great Famine.

The origins of Celtic Football Club are inextricably linked to the Great Famine and it is right that we once again join in this commemoration.

Celtic was formed by immigrants and to help people in real need, many whose families had escaped the devastation of the Great Famine.

We should never forget the devastating impact this event had on the lives of so many millions of people and we are pleased again to play our part in this year’s memorial.
