2nd Street Plough Bhoys CSC


About the Plough Bhoys CSC

The 2nd Street Plough Bhoys CSC was founded in 2013 in the Plough & The Stars in Old City, Philadelphia.

The Club’s founding members and original committee were John Joe Devlin, Mairtin O’Bradaigh, Gary “Swing” McDonald, Ryan O’Donnell, Bill Fitzgerald, and Séamus Cummins. Other founding members were Joseph Brooks, Rory Flynn, Chris Giles, Aidan McCreesh, and Tim McMahon.

Since those humble beginnings eight years ago, the Club has hosted ex-Celtic players, coaches, and other representatives. In addition, we have held four East Coast Celtic Supporter’s Féile’s bringing Celtic fans from all over the globe to Philadelphia.

The Club prides itself in its treatment of visitors from abroad and from Celtic Supporters here in North America. So, if you’re ever in Philadelphia, drop in for a match and one of the Plough’s perfect pints of Guinness.

It’s been a magical ride so far, and we look forward to having you visit our Club! Guests and new members are always welcome.

Memberships for the 2021-2022 season are $100. See our Secretary, Al Borden to become a member.

We are located in the Plough & The Stars Irish Pub located at 123 Chestnut Street in Old City, Philadelphia.

Our Dedication to Charity

One of the main missions of the Plough Bhoys CSC is to support charities both home and abroad keeping Brother Walfrid’s legacy alive here in Philadelphia. In 2017, three Plough Bhoys ran the Philadelphia Marathon to raise money for the Celtic FC Foundation’s, 67 Kitchen’s Project. In May of 2018 those funds raised were able to build a sustainable kitchen to provide safe and secure cooking and food storage facilities at the Liwiro School in Malawi. Our members have also taken part in the Foundation’s Walk On events in New York and Philadelphia.
