Ballymun United sign historic deal with Celtic Football Club – Reilly

4 October, 2016


Ballymun Sinn Féin Councillor Noeleen Reilly extends congratulations to Ballymun United on their historic deal with Celtic Football club.

Speaking ahead of the Launch tonight, Cllr Reilly said,

“I am absolutely delighted for one of my local sports club who have just signed a deal with Celtic football club to become part of their ever growing International Club Partnership Programme

“Ballymun United are an integral part of the community in Ballymun.

“Since the last sixties, they have been working with young people in the area, taking children off the streets and bringing the community together in a positive way.

“This deal is a testament to all the hard work done by volunteers in the club over the decades which has often gone unrecognised.

“The expertise and idea sharing that Celtic will bring to Ballymun United will be a huge bonus to the club in their future development.

“Ballymun united moved to their new home in 2010, the facilities are excellent and hopefully the club house can be completed in the next couple of years.

“Deals like this with Celtic can only add to the already impressive reputation of the club and I look forward to seeing how this progresses over the coming years.”
