The Celtic End

Image

The Jungle got all the acclaim but at the old Celtic Park the Celtic End of the ground was a magical place to watch football from. 

And it witnessed some amazing times.  Some supporters on the Huddleboard have been reminiscing about this famous old terracing and it’s got The Shamrock bhoys a bit misty-eyed as well . . .
