Celtic FC Foundation is delighted to be the recipient of a fantastic donation of £1,000 which was raised from the Éire Go Brách 20th Anniversary Dinner which took place in the Balmoral Hotel Belfast, on Saturday, May 28, 2016.
Celtic FC Foundation Chief Executive Tony Hamilton attended the dinner along with ex-Celt Tosh McKinlay and Celtic SLO, John-Paul Taylor.
The evening was a celebration of the coming together of Celtic fans in April 1996 to form Éire Go Brách CSC and the success they have encountered over the years. The evening commenced with a welcome from Aidso Digney and fans then enjoyed a hearty meal followed by a charity auction and raffle. The evening was then topped off with some local music.
An additional highlight of the event was the surprise arrival of Celtic FC Foundation Ambassador Jay Beatty. Jay popped along to the dinner with Dad Martin to present Aidso Digney of Éire Go Brách with a framed signed Martin O’Neill shirt, including an iconic image of Martin and a fact-file of the his time at Celtic FC. This fantastic donation was quickly added to the Auction lot and raised £550.
Celtic FC Foundation CEO, Tony Hamilton said: “The hospitality we were shown was first class. This club, like many across Ireland, work very hard to get their supporters over for matches and it’s relentless, non-stop work.
“It’s fantastic that Celtic FC Foundation was one of three beneficiaries alongside PIPS and the Kano Foundation and I’m honoured to have been asked to attend the anniversary dinner.”
On behalf of Celtic FC Foundation we offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved.
