About this book
An evocative family memoir and an intimate portrait of father and son, and how a football team unites them in an unbreakable bond, telling of the first and only game Michael Tierney attended with his father, to see Celtic play in Glasgow, and their emotional return to Celtic Park decades later.
As the years pass, that one magical evening fades in the bustle of family commitments and the constant spectre of unemployment. Then, in 2002, John Tierney has a severe stroke that renders him immobile and unable to talk. For his wife Catherine, for Michael and his five sisters and three brothers, the landscape of life would change irrevocably.
