Articles by Eoin Coyne

Eoin Coyne is a dishevelled 30-something Dublin-based Celtic fan who is ambitious enough to have a leaning towards a team in pretty much every league, so special mentions reserved for St. Patrick's Athletic, Aston Villa, Nantes and Seattle Sounders – all perennial underachievers. He is also a season ticket holder for the Irish national team's games which means he is either a moron or the quintessential optimist. When not complaining about things he enjoys good TV, good or really bad movies, stand up comedy and his futile attempts to play 5-a-side to a competent level. Twitter: @fajlovesyerma

Limerick FC Vs. Barcelona – The Match That Never Happened

This Saturday, Celtic will take on Inter in the ‘International Champions Cup’ in Limerick, if the rumours are true and participating clubs are getting £3m each per game then that’s good money for a friendly tournament. No doubt it’ll be great for southern based Celtic fans to see the team in the flesh without having to trek all the way to Dublin but amid all that mirth and revelry spare a thought for Limerick FC, a club who may look at this international revelry going on right on their doorstep with some justifiable bemusement.
