Yes it’s true Celtic are on their way to Dublin this summer for a glamour tie we are all going to enjoy as they take on Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.
Ok so Lionel Messi is going to be in town, that’s great but as a Celtic supporter I am just happy to see the Hoops back in the capital.
It’s great news for Celtic fans throughout the country and it looks set to be the biggest tie of the tournament with people already on social media asking about tickets and when they are to be released.
It also shows just how well respected the football club are to be selected to take part in the tournament with games against not just Barcelona but Inter Milan and the current English Premier League leaders, Leicester City.
Dublin in the sun with the Celts, and of course all this off the back of the Irish winning the Euros (well at least let us dream).
