The Triskele is an ancient Irish symbol - its interpretations ranging from the sublime and spiritual to the secular and mundane ... divine Holy Trinity to simple Time Continuum.

Common to all is the number "3", which has fateful crossover significance in the intriguing story of how three figures pivotal to Celtic's origins became intertwined.


It all began in the troubled Ireland of 1867 when young Fenian rebel, Patrick Welsh, was cornered at Dublin Quay by British Army Sgt Thomas Maley who, for reasons known only to him, allowed the young Irishman to escape, shipboard, to freedom in Scotland.


Fast forward twenty years to the foundation of the Celtic Football & Athletic Company at 67 East Rose Street, Calton. Iconic founding father, Brother Walfrid, was charged with securing the services of prominent local player Tom Maley of Cathcart, son of the aforementioned Sgt Maley. For obvious reasons of historical connection, he recruited the 'exiled' Pat Welsh, by now a successful Glasgow tailor, to accompany him to the Maley household. That meeting resulted in the eventual signing of not only Tom but also his less vaunted brother, Willie.


The rest is not just history but legend.


What would our club be like today had Fate not brought Welsh, Maley and Walfrid together?
