Issue 7 of THE SHAMROCK out now

Issue 7 of the  The Shamrock is  now on sale and for the seventh issue we had to feature the greatest No.7 of all, the one-and-only Jinky.

We explore the decades-long rumours of Irish summer cup games played by a ‘phantom’ Scottish team wearing masks, make-up and disguises to hide their true identity – and the role the Greatest Ever Celt played in these high-jinks. The true story of the Carfin Emeralds and the Kennedy Cup tournament is even better than the legend that has built up down the years. Read all about it!

In ‘Hoops of Steel’ we look at the near-mythical being that was Jimmy Quinn, a miner from Croy whose legend grows with each passing year. Celtic Chronicles takes us to season 1894-5 as the Bhoys aim for 3-in-a-row and the Celtic Cameo is the dashing Dan McArthur, handle-bar moustache and all. We also introduce a new feature of Celtic’related legal clashes called ‘On The Bench’ which kicks off with the the sorry story of former physio Brian Scott and Martin O’Neill’s exploits as a witness.

When we finally get back to games at Celtic Park, the fanzine is on sale at the programmes stall on Janefield Street behind the Lisbon Lions Stand (next to the site of the old Barr’s factory) and in front of the Celtic Way.  The fanzine can also be bought at the independent radical bookshop Calton Books in London Road, Glasgow next to the Barras.
