Alex O’Donnell

For Hoops fans old and new, a tour of Celtic Park marks an unforgettable experience as supporters marvel at the glory and grandeur of Paradise – and fittingly, Celtic FC Foundation has lined up an inspirational guide for an inspirational venue.

Alex O’Donnell, from Giffnock, was a participant on Celtic FC Foundation’s award winning Ability Counts project.

A passionate Celtic fan, he now assists tour guides and groups around the stadium, helping to showcase famous memorabilia and share stories of the club’s illustrious history.

“Alex is an exceptional young man and it’s wonderful that supporters and visitors to the stadium will see his natural warmth and good-nature.”
Celtic Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell

Joining Celtic FC Foundation’s Ability Counts project in 2010, Alex has been involved in numerous extracurricular activities for the Foundation, including mascot duties and attending first-team training sessions.

Ability Counts project features weekly football coaching and dance elements designed to foster and promote inclusion, diversity and friendship between the children involved through a common goal and interest while developing communication and co-ordination skills.

Celtic FC Foundation’s priority is to focus on the four key themes of improving health, promoting equality, encouraging learning and tackling poverty and we have a strong track record of delivering successful community-based projects.
