Dominik Diamond is never short of an opinion. And in his opinion Celtic FC is the greatest football club in the known universe. But through the years, his forthright opinions and his complete inability to keep his mouth shut have got him into huge amounts of trouble. Now, in Celtic & Me - Confessions from the Jungle, Dominik Diamond tells the story of how Celtic Football Club has been a fundamental part of his life. There's the part he played in Martin O'Neill becoming Celtic manager, why he was banned from Celtic TV, which Old Firm manager is best at pub trivia machines, and which Ibrox legend sinisterly threatened to out him on live TV for being a teenage Rangers fan. And there's the night his love of Celtic almost cost him his life - and his kebab. Celtic & Me - Confessions from the Jungle is the entertaining and controversial story of one man who simply refused to shut up. No matter what kind of jungle he was crashing through.

This volume offers a discussion of the phonological and morphological development of Old Irish and its Indo-European origins. The emphasis is on the relative chronology of sound changes and on the development of the verbal system. Special attention is devoted to the origin of absolute and relative verb forms, to the rise of the mutations, to the role of thematic and athematic inflexion types in the formation of present classes, preterits, subjunctives and futures, and to the development of deponents and passive forms. Other topics include infixed and suffixed pronouns, palatalization of consonants and labialization of vowels, and the role of Continental Celtic in the reconstruction of Proto-Celtic. The final chapter provides a detailed analysis of the Latin and other Italic data which are essential to a reconstruction of Proto-Italo-Celtic. The appendix contains a full reconstruction of the Old Irish verbal paradigms, which renders the subject more easily accessible to a wider audience. The book is of interest to Celticists, Latinists, Indo-Europeanists and other historical linguists.

Celtic sea people come in as many varieties as there are people. Some are born to the sea; it is in their blood, like the Vikings. Some have the seafaring life cast upon them, like the men who are pressed into service with a hit on the back of the head. Others are running from life on the land, or cast into the sea through no fault of their own. There are merchants, pirates, privateers, and raiders. They trade if they can, but take what they want.

Esther de Waal, one of Celtic Christianity's preeminent scholars, shows how this tradition of worship draws on both the pre-Christian past and on the fullness of the Gospel. It is also an enlightening glimpse at the history, folklore, and liturgy of the Celtic people. Esther de Waal introduces readers to monastic prayer and praise (the foundation stone of Celtic Christianity), early Irish litanies, medieval Welsh praise poems, and the wealth of blessings derived from an oral tradition that made prayer a part of daily life. Through this invigorating book, readers enter a world in which ritual and rhythm, nature and seasons, images and symbols play an essential role. A welcome contrast to modern worship, Celtic prayer is liberating and, like a living spring, forever fresh. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In Modernism and the Celtic Revival, Gregory Castle examines the impact of anthropology on the work of Irish Revivalists such as W. B. Yeats, John M. Synge and James Joyce. Castle argues that anthropology enabled Irish Revivalists to confront and combat British imperialism, even as these Irish writers remained ambivalently dependent on the cultural and political discourses they sought to undermine. Castle shows how Irish Modernists employed textual and rhetorical strategies first developed in anthropology to translate, reassemble and edit oral and folk-cultural material. In doing so, he claims, they confronted and undermined inherited notions of identity which Ireland, often a site of ethnographic curiosity throughout the nineteenth-century, had been subject to. Drawing on a wide range of post-colonial theory, this book should be of interest to scholars in Irish studies, post-colonial studies and Modernism.

Towards the close of the seventies I began to collect Welsh folklore. I did so partly because others had set the example elsewhere, and partly in order to see whether Wales could boast of any story-tellers of the kind that delight the readers of Campbell's Popular Tales of the West Highlands. I soon found what I was not wholly unprepared for, that as a rule I could not get a single story of any length from the mouths of any of my fellow countrymen, but a considerable number of bits of stories. In some instances these were so scrappy that it took me years to discover how to fit them into their proper context; but, speaking generally, I may say, that, as the materials, such as they were, accumulated, my initial difficulties disappeared. I was, however, always a little afraid of refreshing my memory with the legends of other lands lest I should read into those of my own, ideas possibly foreign to them. While one is busy collecting, it is safest probably not to be too much engaged in comparison: when the work of collecting is done that of comparing may begin. But after all I have not attempted to proceed very far in that direction, only just far enough to find elucidation here and there for the meaning of items of folklore brought under my notice. To have gone further would have involved me in excursions hopelessly beyond the limits of my undertaking, for comparative folklore has lately assumed such dimensions, that it seems best to leave it to those who make it their special study.

The incredible truth behind the legend of George Connelly Hailed as the greatest Scottish talent of his generation, George Connelly made 254 appearances for Celtic and played in the Scotland team that qualified for the 1974 World Cup Finals. But at the age of 26 he walked away from football and the promise of a glittering career. So, what went wrong? George Connelly had a rare talent. He could pass long or short with unerring accuracy, could entertain crowds with his keepie-uppie skills and seemed to have the world at his feet. But with a troubled private life and the pressures of stardom weighing on his shoulders, the man behind the laidback exterior was falling apart. In Celtic's Lost Legend, George Connelly tells the remarkable story of why he walked away from his dreams and from the team he loved. Here, at last, he answers the question that has intrigued football fans for more than forty years. Whatever became of George Connelly?

These short tales are about the trials, successes, and failures of Celtic traders around the world. Go with them to the city of the trader Samark; visit Constantinople; meet the cheater, Fin; watch a young man build a trade empire from pink coral. Some traders were in a hierarchy where they had to claw their way to the top. Other men became traders out of necessity. Cheap goods at one place are very valuable at another. You have to know your market. You don't take jewels to trade at a turnip festival. Follow the trades of everything including snake skins, furs, salt, pearls, rubies, spices, and feathers.

In this unique book, best-selling angel author Theresa Cheung takes readers on a guided tour of Irish spirituality with the focus firmly on the nation's deep-rooted belief in angels. Punctuated throughout with real-life stories from both Irish people and visitors to the 'Emerald Isle', it will show that although being Irish isn't necessarily a prerequisite for seeing angels, it can certainly act as a catalyst. Many Irish people have grown up with stories of guardian angels and protector saints like St Patrick, so their insights and stories provide the perfect launching point to help others connect with their own angels. Here are stories of miraculous healing from this mysterious and sacred land, which has historical associations with the divine. This book will encourage spiritual seekers of all ages to make a pilgrimage to Ireland or, if that isn't possible, to feed their souls with Celtic spirituality.
