Leicester Celtic FC

Leicester Celtic is at based in Loretto Park, Nutgrove, Dublin 14. The football club was founded in 1967 by Michael Flaherty and Father C. Lee, then a curate in Rathgar parish. In return for financial assistance from the Parish, the name of a local street was to be used in the club name. Hence Leicester Avenue spawned the name Leicester Celtic. One of the most famous players to play for Leicester Celtic is Damien Duff, the Irish international footballer. Richard Sadlier, Eric Miller and David Gillick also lined out for the soccer club. The club's teams play their home matches at pitches in Loreto Park, Nutgrove, Dublin 14.
